This huge square (the second largest in England) is an oasis of peace and calm just a few minutes from the bustle of Bristol harbour. It is surrounded by elegant buildings (mostly Georgian) and a huge swathe of lawns and flower beds. In the middle, a slightly forlorn statue of King William I on his horse (needs a clean up)....

Its perfectly placed, well designed and is a breath of fresh air in the City. It is surrounded by parking spaces, and on its boarders are restaurants, and cafes. Its a short walk to the Old Vic, and in the other direction The Hippodrome and Colston Hall. The Arnolfini, and The Watershed are also easily assessable as well as Millennium... More

Its a quite a large area with lawns and criss-crossed from corner to corner, side to side by 4 paths. There is an equestrian statue to William III in the centre. Some nice georgian (?) civic-looking buildings are at its edges. A few places to sit down apart from the lawns themselves.

Created around 1800, this is a lovely open space surrounded by interesting buildings. On a Sunday there were lots of fancy cars parked all around and people were taking photos and chatting to the owners. Parking is quite expensive on Queens Square, but you don't turn up in a Ferrari and complain about parking ! ! ! ! Lovel on... More

This old square is a delight with fine architecture, history and a grassed park to sit in. I use it as a short cut between Temple Meads and the harbour.

A nice green open space on the edge of the main city centre, near the river. Spoiled slightly by the cyclists who appeared to regard pedestrians as trespassers and would hurtle passed you, without warning, from behind. One cyclist actually brushed against my right shoulder as he came by at high speed. If I'd moved an inch to my right... More

Queen Square is nice to walk through when visiting the city. It is surrounded by lovely buildings and the square itself is clean and well tended. I don't believe there is actually much to actually visit here but it is good stroll through on a nice day.
