After having just recovered from a marvellous weekend in Sheffield (a tip top northern city!) I thought I would share some of the sights and experiences of the place!
Apart from getting way too drunk and eating mucho loads of food I also appreciated having my friend as a tour guide to show me some of what the city has to offer.
A fantastic place in Sheffield is the Winter Gardens. Not only do they have a huge indoor garden with lots of fancy plants, they also have a trendy art gallery and a large cuter than a button handmade foyer.
These were a couple of pieces that caught my eye in the gallery. Local art is really important and it’s nice to see that these local artists were given a bit of recognition in the gallery!
There was also a gallery dedicated to all sorts of curiosities, the main themes being rocks and minerals, birds and insects! Very interesting to any nature/animal enthusiast.
You’ll just have to believe me that the actual gardens are really pretty. My tour guide had a phobia of the pigeons that live there so I didn’t get the chance to take any pictures. Hahahahaha.
I hope I have convinced you that Sheffield is the place to be and if you don’t appreciate culture then you can just go shopping… I shall depart by showing you some sneaky shots I snapped of my beautiful tour guide playing dress up in one of said shops!
