Every time I visit sheffield city centre i love to spend time in the Peace Gardens. Although only small, and slightly spoiled when the adjacent hotel and office block were constructed, this is an excellent place for outdoor lunch on a fine dry day. In summer it can be a lively place with people attracted by the fountains and in the run-up to christmas it is transformed into a winter wonderland. Very central for shops, theatres, etc and close to the indoor Winter Gardens.

A visit in summer will show the people of Sheffield enjoying the garden its not large but pleasabt to visit.You might find children trying to keep dry wilst trying to dodge the fountain . In winter towards Christmas it is transformed and lit up and resembles a small wonderland. Just around the corner are the Illuminations of Fargate and we have a wonderful Christmas tree outside the Town Hall.

We loved the small streams of water around the gardens, but found the fountain noise rather intrusive.

We visit here regularly, the winter gardens are adjacent so its a nice afternoon walk round. Usually get a pasty or sausage roll from across the road and sit down to eat and chill.

Although covering only a small area, the gardens are a lovely place to spend some time and people always look happy to be here. I like the fountains and the water cascades, and the ball fountains, all of which give a feeling of tranquility.
