Lovely Place

Whilst visiting the docks, we had a wander through Queen Square, a statue of William III in the middle it a place steeped in history, as detailed by a very informative board.

Lovely little square in the centre of Bristol. With a statue in the middle, parking available, not a lot more you can say about it really.

This little park is apparently the squarest park in Europe! It's small, perfectly formed and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of the harbour area.

Come here to take a relatively quiet walk around and across the square. Have a picnic on the grass area in the centre. Admire the trees surrounding the square along with the buildings. A short walk from the Watershed area with parking if your'e lucky or the multi-storey just across the road.

Great place to relax and chill in the city. Good for picnics with the kids and very close to the Harbourside.
