This 19-acre site is a green haven within our busy city and in 2005 underwent a major restoration programme.

Originally laid out in 1836, the Gardens are listed by English Heritage as a Grade II site and contain a number of listed buildings, including the stunning glass pavilions.

 

Restoring the Gardens

The restoration programme in 2005 was in keeping with the spirit of the original Victorian design, whilst rejuvenating the plant collections and adapting the Gardens for modern-day needs.  As well as providing a 'green lung' in this built up area and catering for general amenity, the gardens have outstanding plant collections, making them a centre for horticultural excellence and providing educational opportunities.  The project was a partnership between ourselves and:

  • The Friends of the Botanical Gardens
  • Sheffield Botanical Gardens Trust
  • Sheffield Town Trust
  • The University of Sheffield
