To Do

Here’s an idea of things to do.

The J G Graves Woodland Discovery Centre.

Set in the extensive and beautiful Ecclesall woods, the Woodland Discovery Centre is the perfect indoor and outdoor facility for a spectrum of events and a visit to the woods.  

Space is available to hire at the centre for:

  • Families to celebrate weddings, birthdays and anniversaries
  • Businesses and groups to hold meetings and team building events
  • Schools to hold educational days for pupils

The centre runs craft courses all through the year from cider making to wood work skills.  Public events in the autumn and spring celebrate Sheffield’s rich woodland heritage and demonstrates the unique facilities of the centre, as well as providing activities such as story telling, discovering nature and traditional uses of wood in the home and garden.

For more information regarding any of our courses please contact us on 0114 235 6348.
