“Winter Gardens in Spring”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

We passed through the Winter Gardens several times over the space of a weekend and were struck by it being an oasis of tranquility in an otherwise busy city centre. Look out for the many fossils in the steps of the hotel which opens into the Winter Gardens ;^)

“Oasis in the heart of the Sheffield”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

A nice location to enjoy couple of hours while you are away from work. Shef winter garden is one of the largest glasshouses around the UK and a perfect place for a quick meal if you are roaming around city as a visitor. The next door St pauls hotel and ego restaurant offers plenty of food choices.

“Perfect oasis”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

I used to eat my lunch in here when I worked in Sheffield. Returning now, many years later, it is lovely to see it is still the same (and I ate my brunch in here!). Rather more pigeons in here than there used to be though. The adjoining gallery was nice to visit too.

“Oasis in Central Sheffield”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

A collection of trees and interesting plants presented in a fantastic purpose built city centre setting. Information boards tell you about the plants in front of you and inform you about their botanical, evolutionary and historical importance.

Well worth popping in

“A very nice place to enjoy your day!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

I don't think there's enough in here to spend an entire day, but as a break from the busy city outside it was lovely to walk around and see this beautiful garden.
I'd often walked past to and from the train station, but never given it much thought. But upon walking in and enjoying the quiet, it was a nice part to my day.
I'm not entirely sure of the purpose, but I did enjoy it, and would highly recommend coming here, but there was a surprising amount of pigeons inside.
