Once a Police box, now another useless piece of nostalgia. Note: Should have a note on the door redirecting people to Macdonalds because that's where they'll be... making routine call and stuff.

OK, so it's an historical police box. You've seen the photo, so you probably don't need to go now. Apart from being a bit of a curiosity it's hard to see this as a genuine attraction for the visitor.

I visit this attraction almost everyday there's something about its unusual shape. The vibes it gives off are a wonder to behold! It's perfect proportions attract energy that is normally wasted. It must be one of the most visited attraction in Sheffield. Be aware tho...More

Saw this whilst passing as it is quite centrally located. Nice to see the police box. Well preserved, quirky, nostalgic.

I was quite struck by this - such a bright colour and very distinctive. You do not see many police boxes in the UK anymore so was good to see this has been preserved.

It's a police box. Painted green. I wouldn't make a special trip to see this but if you're by the town hall or Peace Gardens it's worth looking at.

It's an old police box up against the town hall. Doesn't look like the TARDIS as its green for a start. It is a two minute visit and then its on to the Winter Gardens... or the pub!

In 1976 on my stag night I nearly got arrested for being drunk and the bobbie came out of this box. He let me go as I was getting married but got the summons through just after the day! I am a reformed person!
