Queen Square it's the perfect place to relax in Bristol, it's very quite so you can take a book and lay in the grass or go with friends and have a chat. There're many coffee shops and small restaurants around if you want to grab something to eat. Also its location it's great, it's in the center of Bristol, so... More

Having done an architectural project here i know the area very well. well built up Georgian houses that have been keep to a high standard. Well planned to connect the station and the center of Bristol, however with that comes a lot of pedestrian traffic. The park makes the place distinguishable however is over used.

The Architecture of this fine square has not been ruined over the years by modern development. The character of the old Custom House and other buildings have been preserved despite the majority being Office accommodation. You can still feel the nearness of the Harbourside and previously the Bristol Dock area, when Shipping companies and Merchants were based here. The open... More

It's a square. There are trees surrounding a grassy area with a statue of William III on a horse in the middle. This is a place you travel through, not a place you travel to. It's pretty though and I suppose could work for a picnic in the summer although there are much better picnic places around Bristol!

Worth walking through this quite sizeable residential (guess there are commercial office occupants today) in the middle of Bristol - shows the wealth of the city in recent centuries

Large pretty square providing a pleasant place to walk through on the way from one place to another, rather than somewhere I would head for. Grassy with some nice looking office buildings around. At the weekend it was quiet and relatively car free, so a lovely place to walk.

This is a lovely place to stroll and away from the busy city life. It is a large square, not too far from the river. It was named for Queen Anne. There are lovely Georgian houses around the edge. They must once have been beautiful homes but now the majority are offices of one sort and another. It would be... More

One of the only perfect square place in Europe. It's not that huge but it should be seen. You can enjoy a picnic there or just take a moment to rest after a long walk

A great place to stroll around a green open space in the city centre surrounded by beautiful Georgian architecture.
