TLC’s Midnight Garden

LeafyAn unexpected treat tonight: walking through town we passed the Winter Gardens. Have they always been open so late? I’m sure they used to be bolted and barred from early evening.

Anyway, in we went and discovered that we had the place to ourselves (I’m sure there was a security guard/City Centre Ambassador/CCTV camera lurking somewhere, but we didn’t see them). We wandered among the plants, enjoyed looking at the shadows and had our own private viewing of the Pictures of Sheffield exhibition. A dimly lit private viewing, but still fun.

I’m surprised to discover that the gardens are open until 11pm most days. Should you happen to be passing, I can recommend a late evening promenade. It feels rather pleasantly fairytale magical in there.
