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.

Lovely to have a picnic but better if there is an event. It is so much better than what it used to be with the bus driving through the square. You need to sit and admire all the buildings sure ending you. You can also play pétanque if you wish.

My boyfriend and I took the afternoon to explore Queens Square, packed full of people, good food and drinks! Fun had by all! Just a small item - Heaving crowds with little space, so needs to be some understanding (people usually don't walk into each other on purpose!)

Currently the Harbour Festival has taken over Bristol. Good food, good drinks, good times! The smell of fresh food from all over the world fills the air.

What was originally the largest square in Europe. Now a lovely area to sit in in the Summer surrounded by lovely Georgian houses. Close to the Dock area and the centre of Bristol.

Join the office workers and students alike for a picnic in the sun! Some benches, lots of grass. A favourite spot for lunch.
