A lovely open space to gather in. We have great photo of our daughter with students throwing mortar boards in the air following graduation ceremony in Cathedral nearby. In summer the grassy area is so inviting for Al fresco picnic or just chilling out. An oasis of calm in a busy City.

A nice place to relax especially on a sunny day. The grass is always green and flowers always in bloom. You can enjoy your time and rest or even have a picnic. There are always people around enjoying the place and see the beauty of the Bristol Cathedral and the historical buildings.

First time I'd walked around it in daylight and it's quite a nice location with some great buildings around it. There looks to be plenty happening here most of the time and lots of 'people-watching' opportunities.

Very close to city centre and boutique shops. If you are shopping up there it is more likely you'll want to find a nice bistro restaurant to eat rather than cop a squat on the green!

This is just a piece of grass with benches in front of a the council house. There is no reason to visit and I have no idea why this is rated as an attraction. This is something which you will see on your travels around Bristol, the council house is worth taking a photo of, if you are a tourist.... More

Near city centre, bottom of Park Street with lots of restaurants and shops. Outside cathedral. Lots of benches to sit down and relax if weather is nice.

Just a green space, but sandwiched between the Cathedral and Bristol City council house, both places worth seeing. The open space is good in summer for office workers to eat lunch or play foot ball on. The pathed area is used by the skateborders and is good fun to watch
