What's on this Christmas at Sheffield Park and Garden

This Christmas we set out on a pioneering outdoor adventure with the remarkable Nellie Soames, a former owner of Sheffield Park, who was one of the first young women to venture into the Arctic ‘unescorted’. Discover her unique story as you journey with her around the gardens, experiencing interpretations of the sights that she met so far from her Sussex home created by artist Roy Kelf out of re-purposed milk cartons. Or simply escape into the peace of the gardens and enjoy the natural beauty of Sheffield Park and Garden.
