Sheffield's impressive multi award-winning Winter Garden, which was opened in 2003, is one of the largest temperate glasshouses to be built in Britain during the last hundred years and the largest urban glasshouse in Europe. It presents a stunning green world in the heart of the city.
Situated next to the Peace Gardens and the Millennium Galleries the Winter Garden provides visitors with a unique experience in the city centre. There are more than 2,500 plants from around the world creating a superb display. The building itself is 70 metres long and 22 metres high, large enough to house 5,000 domestic greenhouses.
The Winter Garden also provides a home for the Bessemer Gallery and offers a welcome stop for coffee and light refreshments. Access is available to the Millennium Galleries where, in Cafe Azure, a wide range of refreshments and facilities are available.
Admission to the Winter Garden is free.
