Best Things To Do & Days Out In Sheffield

They might say it’s chilly up north but families will enjoy a warm welcome and plenty of fun things to do 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.

Take a seat and get ready for stunning shows at the affiliated wildlife and falconry centre, where birds of prey do tricks and swoop by you at breath-taking speed, get closer than ever to animals in the walk through and listen out for the hisses and roars of the dinosaurs!

Get close to nature during Sheffield family days out at The Winter Garden, which is one of the world’s biggest greenhouses holds more than 2,500 plants and is free to visit. The Botanical Gardens is also just 2 miles from the centre and 19 acres of restored Victorian gardens, plenty of space for playful childre!
