Photo essay: Sheffield Botanical Gardens - late October autumn visit

After visiting at the beginning of October, we returned to the Sheffield Botanical Gardens at the end of October to have a wander and see how some of the autumn colours were coming along. It was a very cloudy day, but no surprise that there was even more colour to discover and delight it.

If you are looking for some autumn colour, do visit the Sheffield Botanical Gardens. With this mild autumn weather, the colour should be looking good for some weeks to come.

Visit the Sheffield Botanical Gardens website for opening times.
