Autumn Colours at Sheffield Park and Garden

Famous for its autumn colour, this is the season the garden was planted for. The reflections in the lakes add to the splendour and provide the perfect photograph. Please note that to ensure the safety of all, visitors will need a pre-booked ticket to visit during our extremely popular Autumn season. Every Friday we release new tickets for the following week.
