Best Things To Do & Days Out In Sheffield

Wildlife lovers will enjoy a trip to the Tropical Butterfly House that’ll keep you warm on even the coldest of days as you wander through the rainforest while birds fly freely above your head and crocodiles peek out from just underneath the water.

The Botanical Gardens is also just 2 miles from the centre and 19 acres of restored Victorian gardens, plenty of space for playful childre!
