Midweek Breaks In Sheffield
It’s a new year and we think travel should be high on everyone’s resolutions list for 2024. If you’re feeling the pinch after Christmas, a midweek stay is a great way to get better value for money from your trip. Flights, trains and accommodation are all cheaper when you stay Sunday to Thursday. You’re more likely to get a table in your favourite restaurant and less likely to queue for popular attractions – it’s a win-win! Book a midweek overnight stay in Leopold Hotel Sheffield and experience the same comfort, facilities, and hospitality as you would any night of the week. Our best available rates and exclusive special offers are only available when you book directly with one of our team or on our website.

Sheffield Botanical Gardens

Whether you’re travelling as a couple or a family, the Botanical Gardens in Sheffield are a must-see on any trip. Crowds of people flock to this beautiful space on the weekends, making the most of their time off work and school, which often takes from the tranquillity of the gardens. A mid-week visit ensures you can appreciate the flora, fauna, and wildlife within the garden in your own time and with complete peace. There are 5,000 species of plants in 19 acres of land spread across 18 separate garden areas and you can visit their greenhouse enjoying tropical and non-native plants in the humid atmosphere. It’s a free mid-week activity that all ages will enjoy. After your ramble in the gardens, enjoy tea and a cake in a nearby café and enjoy the peace and quiet without the weekend rush.

Sheffield Winter Garden

Another free, accessible place to visit on your midweek trip is the magnificent Sheffield Winter Garden. One of the largest temperate glasshouses to be built in the UK during the last hundred years has created a stunning green world in the heart of Sheffield. The building itself is 70 metres long and 22 metres high and is home to 2500 plant species from all over the world – which we are very lucky to be able to grow and see in the temperate UK. Enjoy the greenhouse without the weekend crowd and afterwards, enjoy direct access to the Millennium Gallery, Millennium Square and Tudor Square. Off-peak is the best time to visit each of these and a great time to take pictures without tourists and families in the shot.

Shopping in Sheffield

If messy, busy shops are your idea of a nightmare shopping experience, mid-week shopping is the way for you. Shops in Sheffield open early – usually between 9 and 10 am– and you won’t see crowds until the evenings, if at all mid-week. Workers and busy families will wait until the weekend to head to town for groceries or entertainment, so midweek is a much more peaceful shopping experience. Enjoy an eclectic mix of shops, bars, and restaurants in Devonshire Quarter, Ecclesall Road and the Antiques Quarter or high street brands in Meadowhall, Orchard Square and the high streets. Skip the queue and find the bargains much easier on a mid-week shopping trip to Sheffield.
