Halloween Guided Tour at Sheffield Botanical Gardens

Alternative Halloween Sheffield

Prefer something a little more chill? This Halloween Guided Tour by the Sheffield Botanical Gardens could be for you. This one hour walk through the gardens will show you the weird and wicked plants that despite their dangerous nature, look the absolute opposite. For example, look at this Jersey Lily, looks super serene, no? But be careful, as if ingested it can cause tremors and even kill, terribly juxtaposing! This guided walk will surely get you in the spirit for Halloween.
