Bishop's House Museum
Though the Bishop's House has been one of Sheffield's finest preserved jewels since 1500, its timber frame and many of its original features still survive. Inside, the house has been expertly reconstructed to look much as it would have done 400 years ago. The bedchamber contains much of the original furniture and fittings. Each room tells an interesting and complex story of the house, its tenants and the local area. Documents and pictures are on display, which record the past contents of the house and show the barns and out-buildings which were once attached. The house also offers some amazing views over the city, nearby park and beyond. Guided tours are available when booked in advance. For wheelchair arrangements and related information, call ahead. Groups with prior educational bookings can visit the museum from Monday to Friday between 10a and 3p.Check website for more details.
