The Bear Pit in Sheffield’s Botanical Gardens represented on a stylish, modern interpretation of a Destination Poster, exclusive to The Sheffield Guide.
Regarded as one of the finest examples of a surviving Bear Pit in the country, this area in Sheffield’s Botanical Gardens now houses a statue of a Brown Bear to indicate its former use. Of course no animals are kept in the Grade II listed Bear Pit now, but it was home to bears during the 19th century as a zoological exhibit. Fortunately, nowadays it acts as a small — almost hidden — visitor attraction towards the south side of the Botanical Gardens.
Our Sheffield Destination Posters collection feature stylised images of key landmarks around the city. A modern, minimalistic interpretation of destination posters of the past, featuring a stylish subtle coloured filter and film grain-effect on the main image that contrasts beautifully with the sharp edges and panel colour of the SHEFFIELD lettering.
A3 Art Print — printed on your choice of Bamboo, Lustre or Matte paper — in a 25mm smooth black frame.

All prices exclude delivery and we ship worldwide. Shipping options depend on destination and weight; available options will presented for selection when you enter your address during the checkout process. As all items are made-to-order, purchases are shipped following production. Estimated production turnaround time is 3 to 5 working days.
Sustainable Plastic-Free Packaging
Orders are shipped in 100% plastic-free packaging (with the exception of Framed Prints, which utilises biodegradable bubble wrap).
The packaging used for an order varies depending on the products being shipped, but the information below will give an idea of the packaging you can expect an order to ship in.
Paper mailing bags
Most orders up to a certain size will ship in either a small, medium or large paper mailers.
Clothing items such as t-shirts and hoodies are folded neatly into these bags; to save on packing materials and reduce waste we do not pack items into individual bags before they are shipped in these mailers.
Our paper postal mailing bags are manufactured from responsible, sustainable sources to comply with FSC certification. The paper is both compostable and degradable, and paper mailers can be easily recycled, making this an extremely eco-friendly option. The weather-proof parcel protects its contents during transit.
Cardboard boxes are used for orders too bulky for our large paper mailers. They work in just the same way though; clothing items are folded neatly into them, and any products requiring special packaging (such as mugs) which are shipping with clothing items are packed in their own packaging first before shipping in a box.
Each mug ships in a mug box.
11oz white and two-toned mugs ship in our bespoke single, 2x, 4x or 6x boxes. These are designed specifically for protecting mugs during transit.
Other mugs including enamel and travel mugs ship in thinner cardboard boxes. These boxes aren’t weather-resistant so they’re shipped wrapped securely in our bespoke paper mailing bags.
They’re a triangular tube of weather-proof reinforced cardboard. This shape allows for easier transportation and label application so it’s very practical!
All posters ship in these tubes but for the A4 bamboo prints, which ship in reinforced envelopes.
