  • Queen Square
  • Castle Park was the site of the main Bristol shopping area until World War II. During various air raids the majority of the area was destroyed and rather than rebuild here, Broadmead was chosen as the site for the new shopping area.
  • Until 1998 Eastville Stadium stood where Ikea now stands. This was formerly home to Bristol Rovers FC and was a greyhound-racing venue. Over 39,000 people once congregated here!
  • Eastville Park is of Victorian origin and the now ornamental lake was once a boating lake.
  • Stoke Park was once part of the imposing Dower House, which has now been converted to flats.
  • Hermitage Wood is one of the few remaining wooded areas in this part of the city.
  • St Werburghs City Farm was founded in 1980 and is free to visit. The award winning café is also worth trying.
