Smile whatever the weather

Come rain or shine, Sheffield has activities galore to keep little adventurers entertained. Cue brilliant sunshine - let them run wild and free in the Winter Gardens with its 2,500 exotic plants or head to Wortley Hall Gardens to meet a 500 year old oak tree. Cue drizzly rain - let them loose in the Sheffield Ski Village for a spot of skiing and snowboarding or unwind at the Millennium Galleries with some of the finest touring art exhibitions in the country.
