Bishops' House

Sheffield's best kept secret will amply reward time detectives or treasure-hunters willing to seek it out. Over 500 years old, Bishops' House is a living, breathing time capsule where history seeps from every wall & soot-stained fireplace. Bishops' House provides a rare window on life in Sheffield before the steel and smog (once part of the industrial story of the city) and a visit to this gem and a walk in nearby Meersbrook or Graves parks will bring a touch of magic to your weekend.
