Its a square. Not much to add other than its a nice grassy area to chill and relax on on a sunny day. As with most of Bristol parking is the main challenge.

Lovely park area in Central Bristol but better when an event is being held such as the Food Festival as there is more going on.

Its not just the city of Bath that can boast traditional, elegant architecture. This is a large open space near to the Bristol harbour side that has some gorgeous houses surrounding it.

I know it's fairly well used and holds many events, and I always visit during the popular Harbour Festival in July. However, I rarely visit the place, but when I do I enjoy the generally tranquil feel just a few metres away from busy areas along the harbour-side, or watching office workers doing group exercises during their lunch break.

There are information boards around the square explaining it's history, it's fall from grace and how it's come right back. You can walk through the square, sit on a bench and look... More

I went here for the first time visiting the Bristol Harbour Festival in 2015. The whole square was taken over by the festival, but what you could see above the hoardings looked amazing. I will definitely come back to have a look at this square again
