Sheffield Botanical Gardens

Each September, doors to cultural treasures open all over the country for days dedicated to free heritage exploration, led by local experts and volunteers. From guided tours of everything from former steelworks to cemeteries to heritage pub walks to open doors at libraries, mosques, theatres and factories – there's always loads going on across Sheffield for Heritage Open Days. And this time round, for its 25 year, the event is taking place over a whopping ten days.

Come back soon for our top picks of the 2019 Heritage Open Days events in Sheffield.

Manor Lodge

One of Sheffield’s most incongruous buildings: a Tudor ruin, sitting next to a 20th-century residential estate. The hunting lodge used to be at the heart of a huge deer park and once held Mary Queen of Scots in picturesque captivity.

Kelham Island Museum

A series of talks, walks and performances in Kelham Island, looking at untold stories of the area's transformation, urban regeneration, and hipster enterprise.

Trinity United Reformed Church

Situated directly opposite Endcliffe Park and flanked on either side by 19th-century stone-built peaked terraces, the Trinity's brutalist, mostly windowless facade of greying concrete appears completely alien in its surroundings.

Bishops' House

Right at the very edge of Meersbrook Park stands the 16th-century Bishops' House, a small, slightly squint half-timbered building. This is no stately home with servants. This is a home our ancestors might have lived in.
