My grandparents had spoken about these gardens and given me a leaflet about it, but I was no where near prepared for the vast beautiful gardens!

I was shocked that it was free, then by the sheer size and how meticulously kept they are! The pavilions at the top are beautifully preserved and I found some fabulous opportunities to take many photos! The flowers and plants are both unusual and breathtaking.

We then walked around the entire gardens. It was lovely to see such a diverse array of plants and how no area looked identical. The bear in the bear pit also interested us!

A fabulous visit, well maintained and a lovely hour or 2 out!

Lovely lovely place. Very much in the city but not that you would know. Gardens great, greenhouse interesting, features intriguing, experience fulfilling. A wonderful example of England's green and pleasant land. Recommended.

An oasis of calm among the busy streets. Close to Ecclesall road. Rather small in comparison to gardens in some other cities but what is here is great. There is an excellent cafe. Gardens are always clean and very well kept. Extremely popular on sunny days and in the summer there are evening concerts.

My favourite place, a real gem of peace and quite between two busy roads. I love it here. Never tire of the Fountain and the hot house. Must have taken 1000s of photos here. I bring friends and meet my friends from Sheffield here. There is a lovely cafe for a snack and hot drinks or sit outside with an ice cream if the weather is sunny.
In winter it has great photo oppurtunities for making snowmen and if you are really brave to sit at an outside performance in the summer months. Bring a picnic and enjoy.
