Many people visiting Sheffield for the first time are amazed to discover that the city is far different from the way they imagined it. It's a green city built on seven hills and five river valleys, with spectacular views and close to the beautiful Peak District.

Right next door to the Galleries is the multi award-winning Winter Garden, one of the largest temperate glasshouses to be built in the United Kingdom during the last hundred years. This, along with the Peace Gardens, form part of the city's 'Heart of the City' project - a 120 million scheme to regenerate Sheffield's city centre.
