Queen Square is a 2.4 hectares (5.9 acres) Georgian square in the centre of Bristol, England. Following the 1831 riot, Queen Square declined through the latter part of the 19th century, was threatened with a main line railway station, but then bisected by a dual carriageway in the 1930s. By 1991 20,000 vehicles including scheduled buses were crossing the square every day, and over 30% of the buildings around it were vacant.
In 1999, a successful bid for National Lottery funding allowed Queen Square to be restored to its approximate 1817 layout. The buses were diverted, the dual carriageway was removed, forecourts and railings were restored, and Queen Square re-emerged as a magnificent public space surrounded by high quality commercial accommodation.

Lovely place to relax on a summers evening. Well maintained area. Good for children. Safe. Close to the water and lots of decent drinking establishments.

Beautiful green space for people to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Clean and well kept with some interesting history. There is a poster on the perimeter telling the story of the Bristol Riots in Queen Square in October 1831. Very interesting. ☺

Nice public space surrounded by lovely old buildings. It gets very busy when the sun is out with bbqs, volleyball, games being played and probably the point of cider! Great place in the city to kick back and take in some sunshine

Relaxing little park surrounded by cobbled streets. Right next to King Street where all the best pubs are

The Old Customs House hasn't changed externally since 1984 when I briefly worked there for 18mnths. Still very atmospheric didn't get taken out in Hitler's Blitzkrieg...
