  • Winter Garden

    Sheffield Things to Do

    This is a wonderful place. A gigantic, architect designed greenhouse, right in the city centre. The plants are wonderful, and clearly the locals enjoy just sitting around to chill out. A cafe at one end, and it also gives access into a gallery. Well worth a visit.

  • Millennium Square

    Sheffield Things to Do

    In the Heart of the City, this square was created on the site of the old Town Hall extension - anything would have been an improvement for 'The egg - box', but this is an attractive square that links the Winter Garden and Peace Garden.

  • Lyceum Theatre

    Sheffield Things to Do

    A theatre with character. Old fashioned and ornately decorated. The boxes always remind me of The Muppets!

It is also the only remaining example of the work of theatre designer William Sprague outside London....
