Sheffield Botanical Gardens

Sheffield's Botanical Gardens are a popular green oasis lying just off a frenzied shopping area. Replete with winding paths, extensive plant collections, droves of mature trees, and charming edifices, the gardens are home to some extremely well-designed Glass Pavilions which harbor temperate vegetation. The plants residing at the gardens boast a long-standing heritage, hence not just displaying unabashed beauty, but also a treasured legacy. There are also excellent views of the gardens from the Curator's House Tea Rooms and Restaurant at the Clarkehouse Road entrance. The rolling lawns that carpet it, carry the gardens' secrets, such as the Pan statue in the rose garden and the Bear Pit. Home to a scenic boardwalk, a Victorian rose garden and a rare fossil, these beautifully landscaped gardens, designated by English Heritage as being of major architectural and historical interest, are a secluded sanctum of heavenly flora combined with moments of peace.

Chatsworth Farmyard & Adventure Playground

Excellent fun for children of all ages, the adventure playground and farmyard set in the grounds of Chatsworth House provide enough entertainment for a full day out, or can be used in conjunction with the house or gardens. The woodland adventure playground has two sections: a huge construction of wooden walkways, ladders and slides; and a smaller scale sand and water play area, which has an educational slant. The farmyard allows access to a good range of animals, including hens, sheep, pigs and cows. Children can get close to the animals and there is a milking demonstration daily. There is also a small cafe, a gift-shop, and plenty of space to have a picnic. Opening times differ for all, so check the website for details.
