Great for a picnic

I love the scale of this historic square. Large and open surrounded on all sides by large historic buildings. A great place for a picnic right in the centre of Bristol.

This is a great place to chill out just steps away from the city centre. This place comes alive with festivals ok the summer time but is great on quiet, sunny days too

On a weekend visit to friends in Bristol we went on a walk to get to know the city and I must admit I liked the buildings around this square. Im sure in summer this would be the place to hang out. Watch out for the cyclists!

This square is one of the best places to hang out with friends or have a picnic with family/friends. Many festivals are organised in this square, which makes it every more fun to visit Bristol in Summer. The other best of this square is that you get to see some terrific buildings from bygone years. I do recommend this place.

Great festivals in the summer, easy to get to, great for picnics. Very laid back and open space with sun and pubs close by. You can get something around in a pub to take out.

I just love it here. Although now many of the houses are offices you can just imagine in bygone years how it must have been. It's a place you can sit and watch the world go by. The central area is very peaceful and sometimes events are put on by the Bristol City council. Well worth a visit.

The square os steeped on the history of bristol. Not much to see today though but a nice place to sit and relax. Now and again there are concerts and events to go to. Enjoy your visit

We hadn't walked around this part of Bristol before and took it as a short-cut. There was a choir singing in the middle and it was a nice space, with some great buildings around as well.
