Peace Garden

Big Yellow Post Box,
Peace Garden,
St Peter’s Square,
M2 4EG

Manchester became a the world’s first nuclear-free city in 1980 at the height of world nuclear paranoia. Today the world is no more safe and the garden isn’t especially peaceful, bordered as it is by the busy Princess Street and a tramline. Still, centred around the Messenger of Peace statue and sheltered by the Town Hall, it offers a lunchtime refuge for City Centre office staff.
