When summer arrives everyone likes to go there even me. I usually go with my friends and spend some time. It's a beautiful place to have some fresh air and enjoy the weather.

this is a nice open space in the heart of the city centre, often used for open air events. Shops, nice restaurants, bars and theatres nearby.

Located next to the Sheffield Town Hall, The Peace Gardens is a lovely little square right at the heart of the city (next to Millenium Gallery and Winter Garden). Well worth the visit! Great place to enjoy a cup of take away coffee or just to have a small break on a bench. Beautiful water fountains.

Ok so an afternoon in January will not allow you to get the best from their beautiful city centre oasis. Gale force winds and face-biting cold are not ideal conditions for a picnic, HOWEVER The Peace Gardens are absolutely ideal for packing a basket and a blanket and grabbing take-away coffees from a multitude of eateries surrounding the site.

Revamped a few years ago with the loss of much of its grass, people soon got used to the newer Peace Gardens with its water features and fountains. While kids seem to play in the latter no matter how cold the air, the seating around this area beside busy Pinstone Street provides respite for shoppers and a place for people... More
