The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

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.

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.

Shepherd Wheel

Shepherd Wheel is one of more than a hundred water-powered grinding wheels that were once in action in Sheffield. It's a great little stop on a Porter Valley walk, a few minutes from Endcliffe Park.

Weston Park Museum

Trace Sheffield's social history and learn about life and nature in further flung parts of the world. The museum sits in one of the city's prettiest green spaces, next to blossom trees, a bandstand and pond.

Ecclesall Woods

Bluebells, crafts and ancient history: it all lies between the trees. And there's the magical Woodland Coffee Stop to fuel your adventure.
