So a few reviews on here are pretty damning of Queen Square, and to a degree, yes they are right. Its a very simple square amongst old houses from a bygone era of wealth. On a cold winters morning.....worth little more than strolling through hand in hand, chuckling at the squirrels and glancing at the buildings. However, to us in... More

The concept of this event is brilliant and having visited several times with friends, I have to say, it's been my venue of choice over the last few weeks. The service on Friday however, was so bad, that we left early. And it's all down to one person - a young lady with dreads. I was unfortunately served by her... More

It is a charming square with lots of lush tress around, great place to sit down on the grass when the weather is favorable and have lunch or relax after a long day of work!

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).
