    Description
    Queen Square is a 2.4 ha garden square in the centre of Bristol was originally a fashionable residential address, but now most of the buildings are in office use. The site on which the Square was built lay outside Bristol's city walls and was known as the Town Marsh. The Square was planned in 1699 and building finished in 1727. It was named in honour of Queen Anne. The north side and much of the west were destroyed in the Bristol Riots of 1831 and rebuilt. Many of the buildings now have listed building status. In 1937 the Inner Circuit Road was driven diagonally across the Square but in 2000 it was removed and the open space restored.
