You remember Sheffield. I mentioned it previously where the city celebrated Easter with a cool rubber duck race on a lovely Spring day.
I guess I picked the right day to go for a stroll down to the City Centre. Sun was out. Look at those cherry blossoms against that blue background. Lovely sight here at Peace Gardens. I swear I didn't make it any more blue than it really was. It really was a beautiful day. I am glad I was around to witness Spring arriving. Just a week or so ago everyday was cold and even hailed lightly on some evenings.
There's a boy who knows how to enjoy a good Spring day in style.
I then walked around Peace Gardens to explore what else was around the vicinity and came across this cool looking structure. I later found out this is the Sheffield Winter Garden. Apparently it is the largest urban glasshouse in Europe. It was officially opened in 2003 by the Queen herself so I guess this must be a huge deal.
I cannot deny I have a thing for these iconic red structures. These two letter boxes were actually just a few paces away from each other. I wonder if they deliver to the same territories since one said 'GR' and the other said 'ER'. I can easily look it up but it seems more interactive if someone can shed some light on this in the comments. Of course really, this is an altogether nicer way of saying how lazy I am. Brownie points for honesty perhaps?
I walked further away from the centre and spotted the Sheffield Cathedral here, bathing in the sunlight. My feet decided it has had enough of walking and I went back round and came across Crucible Theatre and The Lyceum.
I was excited when I found out Crucible Theatre is the place where the annual World Snooker Championship is held! When I was a teenager, I used to follow a bit of the sport on the TV. A time where John Higgins, Ronnie O'Sullivan and Marco Fu were the big names. Unfortunately by the time I found out, the tickets were all sold out.
The Lyceum is another interesting building. It is the last remaining example of an Edwardian auditorium in Sheffield. I'll have to try and catch a performance there when I inevitably visit Sheffield again in the future..
