Family with children exploring the meadows together

Our opening hours: 
Every Sunday, April to September and Monday to Thursday in Sheffield school holidays

From Sunday 25th July

We know how important spending time with friends and family safely is right now. We'll be opening up for indoor crafts and guided tours while keeping some measures in place to ensure the safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff. You can find out at here how we are keeping Sheffield Manor Lodge Covid secure for those that visit.

We continue to ask that you buy your tickets in advance to help us ensure that we keep our visitor levels to a number that allows everyone to enjoy our indoor spaces safely. Tickets can be bought on the door but may not be available if we have reached capacity.

It's time to play

Summer is here and its time for some well earned, fun.

We've got a day of play lined up for all our family visitors throughout the school holidays. Grab your fun filled list of mini moments to experience in our grounds. You'll explore nature, discover our history and most importantly, enjoy family time together. 

Crafts are back, with a slight difference. Get creative in our Discovery Centre and explore on our outdoor trail. There's a different theme each week. We'll be offering two crafts inside and keeping our outdoor trail, but limiting numbers to ensure it's a safe and comfortable experience. Full details on how we are making our activities Covid secure can be found at the bottom of this page.
