Wheelchair Access

People in wheelchairs can access all parts of the Gardens.  The site is gently sloping and there are still a few sets of steps, but wherever there are steps there is an alternative, wheelchair-friendly route.

The Sheffield Time Walk is a non-profit organisation which promotes and informs people of Sheffield’s heritage. Their first graded access map is of Sheffield Botanical Gardens. See
