“Nice and open”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Another nice location to sit and view lovely colourful trees, fountains, water cascades and views of Sheffield City Centre, whilst enjoying a sandwich and drink on a nice summers day. The Winter Gardens are just around the corner from here, together with nice restaurants.

“Would be better without the screaming children!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

The garden area would be lovely as the fountains are very pretty and there are some bench tables to sit and enjoy the gardens. However, we visited in the school holidays so there were fairground rides and screaming children in the fountains so it was far from peaceful.

“A Place Everyone Will Know”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

The Peace Gardens are located in th centre of Sheffield on Pinstone Street with the feeling of a large park with the surround of Mercure Hotel, The Town Hall and shops on the main road directly opposite. This is a nice place to cal land sit when you have been shopping or just want to sit in the sunshine as there is a large fountain in the middle which can have a cooling effect on a hot day. The Peace Gardens have quite a few trees surrounding the area and at Xmas these are illuminated along with Xmas decorations and are very pretty. There are lots of seating areas and often ice-cream vans according to the weather. So nicely and well situated, a good place to meet and just admire the passers by or maybe have a drink in one of the local pubs or restaurants which are situated just off the gardens.

“Great place to sit in the sun and watch the world go by.”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

The gardens are beautiful with their well maintained grass areas and beautiful fountains. Plus there are a lot of eating places situated around the gardens. The only problem is during the warm weather it can be busy with families and children playing in the fountain so if you want a little peace go in the winter gardens as it is air conditioned and close by.

“Somewhere nice to sit in the middle of Sheffield”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Wonderful place to sit and watch the world go by in the middle of the city. Grass for a picnic or snack, to sit on if the seats are full.A great fountain to watch and plenty of places to have a coffee inside or out.
