Strange to see critical reviews on this place. This is one of the earliest examples of a planned urban space outside of London. Surrounded by listed Georgian buildings and beautiful London Plane trees. Great place to relax in central Bristol on a sunny day. More architectural interest than the Clifton terraces and squares. Spicer and Cole cafe on the north... More

I have no idea how a just a piece of open space beats attractions. Sure, there are a few nice houses/offices around the square but this is just a piece of grass. Do not even bother to visit this if you are in Bristol unless you fancy lolling about on a hot day and have no garden. Sometimes a marquee... More

It's just a square park, nothing interesting nearby and not worth a visit out of the way unless you want to sit in a park area for a while

Nice historic Georgian square just off the city centre. Nice place to relax, maybe eat. A few benches around to sit on. a nice green space. Can walk through here from centre to get to Redcliffe Church. Has some good festivals, day events here too.

Nice to come across this green space and square in the middle of Bristol, with nicely restored houses on all four sides including the 1835 Custom House. They obviously made a wise decision to re-route vehicular traffic and keep it open to pedestrians and cyclists only. The statue in the middle is King Billy (William III).

We make a point of diverting through the square every time we are near the centre. Amazing to think it was the biggest 4 sided residential square in Europe. Good to visit whenever there is a concert - but not enough of them so please arrange more!!

Go during the summer festivities Bristol offers during the summer months. Plenty of drink, food, music and street performers in the heart of Bristol.

Queen Square was in serious danger of becoming side-lined, despite its historical importance. A brave decision to divert traffic, remodel the square, and give it a new role has paid off. A few years ago, Queen Square was a busy adjunct to the City Centre, with serious traffic problems. The occupants of its beautiful old buildings were lured out to... More
