Clifton Park is a lovely place for a peaceful walk with plenty of information about it's history and feature's, it is well laid out and very easy to get around. the water splash area for younger visitors was proving a great hit even on a rainy day, with a junior fun fair and snack bar there is plenty to keep...

It must be a good 30 years since my last visit to Clifton Park Museum and I really liked it then. I visited today with my daughter and my impression has not changed. Something different to see in every room from a history of Rotherham to displays of beautiful local pottery. I particularly liked the York and Lancaster Regimental section... More

Lovely park right in the centre of Rotherham. Despite the Council's best efforts to make it difficult to reach because of its road system and Eric Pickles best efforts to destroy public facilities we managed a few hours in the park. Not everything was open, not doubt due to Pickles but this remains a great place to visit.

Clifton Park is a really good Park and has nice gardens, a pool fountain, although really only suitable for when it is hot.

An interesting diversion which even the kids enjoyed especially the period kitchen, I had to smile when one of the youngest of the grandkids asked where the washer drier was kept. Nice to see its one of the few remaining museums to allow free admission
