The Garrison Hotel was a military guardhouse and ammunition base in the area known in Sheffield as Hillsborough Barracks. As a grade II listed building, it represents the only surviving example of a walled Barracks in the country.
The barracks were considered to be among the finest and best arranged in the United Kingdom, and as a military deport ranked among the largest in the country. If you’re the kind of person who likes to know a bit about the history of where you are staying, we have a History page just for you!
