The Sheffield Botanical Gardens cover 19 acres and were first opened in 1836. Originally designed by Robert Marnock in the Gardenesque style, the site now has fifteen different garden areas featuring collections of plants from all over the world. The Gardens contain several listed buildings including the restored Grade II* listed curvilinear Glass Pavilions, some of the earliest ever built.
Located on the Western side of Sheffield, one mile from the city centre, our workshops are held in the Demonstration Centre, where we cater for beginners to advanced photographers.
Free parking is availble on site. The Curators House restaurant and tea rooms are located within the gardens. There is disabled access throughout the majority of the Gardens.
We now also run Up Close and Personal Wildlife Photography workshops at Mayfield Animal Park on the outskirts of Sheffield. Learn how to photograph a selection of wildlife from field mice, alpaca, dwarf mongoose, skunks, meerkats, reindeer exotic birds and many more. The workshop is split between working indoors with the smaller animals learning how to create amazing close up detailed shots and outdoors with some of the larger animals.
