Lovely area to sit when the weather is nice. Near to shops and cafes so it's nice to sit there and have a small snack and a drink. Only problem is can be really busy and full of kids when it's nice, sunny weather.

first time I have been into the Peace Gardens, I went for a evening stroll with my partner as he said it was the best time to go not many people there and it was just nice to sit relaxing, listening to the water in the background also watching the odd few passer by's coming from pubs. Beautiful and clean

I struggle to see how people rate this as good or excellent. This is certainly not a garden except the smallest bit of grassing. Peace is another questionable statement. On a nice day it gets very packed and there is lots of screaming children so hardly peaceful. If it is quite you get the constant sound of the many empty... More

A must visit almost every time we visit the city centre just for our son (who was 2 the first time) to run around the fountains or sit and have something to eat. Great little feature of the city centre.

I enjoyed this part of Sheffield immensely. The fountains run on a set sequence, which lasts around 4-5 minutes before repeating. It's nice to sit and watch, especially in the sun. Lots of other people doing similar. Lovely location, lovely view. In the evening of Saturday, when England were playing their first World Cup match, I went for a walk... More

Stayed at local hotel and just stumbled upon this place, how lovely, very busy during a relatively warm day but still relaxing with the numerous water features, I nice idea in a city centre.

Lovely place to sit and watch the world go by in nice weather. Outdoor seating for a lot of the restaurants and cafés and lovely fountains. Plenty places to sit and nice grassy areas set next to the beautiful Town Hall.

The Peace Gardens.... If by a garden you mean a few patches of grass then fair enough. Peace ?? Very busy & noisy when sunny with kids running all over 'playing' in the fountains. The backdrop of Sheffield Town Hall is impressive as it's a lovely building but that's about it. I really don't understand how people can rate this... More
