The Peace Gardens are award-winning public gardens near the Winter Garden and within walking distance of the Millennium Galleries. Originally the churchyard of St Paul's church, which was built in the 18th century, this attraction is a must-see. The gardens form the central part of a spectacular walk, the emerging Gold Route, taking you from Sheffield Railway Station through a series of exciting new developments, each with their own distinctive lighting, public art, and fountains. Keep an eye out for numerous memorials for soldiers of Sheffield who served in various wars, such as the Spanish Civil War and the Korean War. You will also find a memorial to Hiroshima, a popular landmark. Explore the nearby museums, grab a relaxing drink in the cafes, or browse through the shops.

  • We like to spend a little time in the Peace Gardens when we visit Sheffield. The weather was nice and it wasn't too crowded for a Saturday. The fountains were turned on which made our day... really lovely to watch. It felt so peaceful.
  • Depending on the weather this can be a fab spot. Surrounded by hotels, restaurants, historic buildings and fountains it is quite a lovely place. At certain times of the year the space is well utilised and turns into a pop up bar or other themed venue/event space. Worth walking to see what's going on. Ever-changing.
