Discover the seasonal silhouettes in the landscape this Christmas

Dog walkers in silhouette

THIS EVENT HAS NOW FINISHED. This Christmas, we invite you to spend some time in the garden, taking in the views and spotting the seasonal silhouettes around the garden interacting with the landscape.

Saturday 17 November - Sunday 2 January

At this busy time of year, there's nothing better than taking some time out from the Christmas preparations and family gatherings to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the outdoors. Some fresh air, a bit of solitude or a chance to chat with a companion, or time to observe the changes in nature as the season evolves may be just what you need. 

This Christmas at Sheffield Park and Garden, we're adding some seasonal silhouettes to the garden for you to spot on your walks. Look out for them around the network of paths and see if you can join in with any of their activities. If you visit us this autumn, you may already have spotted our gardener raking up leaves just outside the visitor reception building.

If you're visiting with children or grandchildren, pick up one of our Spot the Robin Christmas trail sheets to keep youngsters occupied on the way round too.  We're challenging them to look out for the robins hiding in each of our festive silhouette scenes as you enjoy a walk.
