Sheffield's Winter Garden
Sheffield's Winter Garden is one of the largest temperate glasshouses to be built in the UK during the last hundred years and will create a stunning green world in the heart of the city. It is the largest temperate glasshouse in a European City centre.



The Winter Garden is part of the city's 'Heart of the City' project - a £120 million scheme to regenerate Sheffield's city centre. It stands alongside the award-winning Peace Gardens, Millennium Galleries and Town Hall.




The garden contains more than 2,500 plants from all around the world. It has tropical plants of all colours and sizes from 150 species of plants, including big palms from Central America, Madagascar and China.

The Winter Garden is absolutely beautiful. The scale of it is very powerful.

The Winter Garden will be open daily to everybody, residents and visitors alike, all year round from 8.00am to 6.00pm, until the final completion of the Heart of the City project. After that it should be open late into the evening for spectacular night-time visits.
