St.Johns Gardens is a well kept area in the heart of the city. Opposite the world museum, it is a lovely place to sit on a sunny day. Home to several monuments and statues, it is a peaceful setting for such memorials in the city.

A peaceful retreat in the heart of the city. Some interesting statues (not all well known) and war memorial plaques. Lovely place to sit calmly and meditate.

After visiting the nearby Walker Art Gallery we strolled through these gardens to look at the statues. Despite a cold, rainy day we enjoyed our stroll.

A small but perfectly maintained garden that is a peaceful spot in the centre of this busy city. Lots of statues and tributes are here, including a particularly moving tribute to Liverpool96

These gardens are in the centre of the city with most of the area covered by grass so it is a nice open space. Dotted around are quite a few statues of local 19c worthies including Prime Minister William Gladstone. Unfortunately, also laying around were...More

Although I can't agree with some previous comments that this place is amazing, it is a pleasant enough place for a stroll or, more importantly, a quiet sit down while in the city centre.
