Not that peaceful as usually a hub of people enjoying the green of the city centre. Children especially enjoy the fountains. Clean and cheerful. There are often city ambassadors around to help you too.

The peace gardens are an excellent place to visit any time of year, it is surrounded by a museum and the place outside with water features. All round a nice place to visit to relax with friends or on your own.

Great gardens for all to enjoy. Good for children. Very calming. There are seats all around the water features so you can sit and rest and watch the water formations to your hearts content.

This is a lovely space to relax in the centre of the city. Green space, water features and fountains which are always a magnet for kids to run through in the warm weather. Its next to the registry office so there are often wedding parties...More

Mid October visit but with very mild weather. This is a nice place to sit and relax, with the constant sound of running water. Due to the unseasonal weather, we found there were children playing in the fountains and having great fun splashing around.

Very well designed with many benches. The water and statues make you think you are miles away rather than in the middle of a busy city.

Get off at the bottom of West Street and walk down Leopold Street, or get off at Cathedral and walk up Fargate.
