A visit to Sheffield Park and Garden is a tradition the whole family can enjoy. Whether you prefer to explore the parkland or walk around the garden to burn off some of those Christmas calories, take a look at some of the activities your family can enjoy this Christmas. Let the festivities commence!

Spot the robin Christmas trail

Saturday 17 November to Wednesday 2 January

Look out for the robins hiding in each of our festive silhouette scenes as you enjoy a walk around the garden. Will you be able to spot all eight of them? Will there be a real one sitting nearby trying to fool you? Pick up a sheet from visitor reception as you enter the garden to help you find your way around. 

This is a free activity, normal admission applies.
