Great botanic garden with free entry. Some interesting hidden features worth exploring. Explored using Pokemon which gave a whole different perspective.

We were looking forward to our first visit but were sorely disappointed. The plants in the pretty glass pavilions are uncared for and looking very sad. One of the large beds in the garden is infested with Equisetum and a gardener was just chopping it...More

Love the botanical gardens! Great space hidden in the city! Beautiful flowers and plants all year round! Hundreds or friendly squirrels to feed and meet! The bear pits always great to find there and the cafe is lovely up top too

Take a refreshing break from the city, in these wonderful, well kept surroundings. A sanctuary away from the fast city life.

This is a must visit place. It’s free and a very beautiful garden and greenhouses. Just do it. The selection of plants from around the world is superb, nothing else like it in South Yorkshire.

A (rather hilly in parts!) oasis near the centre of the city. Just walked through on a brief visit and really liked it, can't wait to go back and see more.
