National Trust - Sheffield Park and Garden


Sheffield Park and Garden is a family-friendly venue offering a shop, cafe with children's lunch boxes, free parking, and buggy and wheelchair friendly paths. Family events and trails are on throughout the year - check our website for details.

The elegant landscaped gardens at Sheffield Park are alive with colour and wildlife. Four grand lakes are the heart of the garden surrounded by bold planting, winding paths, majestic trees, and dappled glades. Widely regarded as a horticultural masterpiece, the garden has been influenced through the work of ‘Capability’ Brown, Humphry Repton, and Arthur Soames, the late owner. The Grade I listed garden and encircling parkland and woodland offers an escape into nature, whatever the season (or weather). There is nothing like being outside to spark adventure and imagination.
