Shaw & Co’s Headquarters is located in the magnificent Queen Square in the heart of Bristol.
Nestled amongst Bristol’s Harbourside and Old City areas, Queen Square is a popular retreat for workers and visitors to the city who are looking to relax. The square also regularly hosts outdoor theatre, concerts and other major events, all against the backdrop of the magnificent Georgian town houses that dominate views across the square.
About Queen Square
Until the beginning of the 17th century, the area on which Queen Square now stands was marshland that had been used as the city’s rubbish dump and for weaponry practice. In 1622, it was remodelled as a tree lined promenade and a place to play bowls.
The first house was built on the south side of the square in 1699 and in 1700, the square was laid out in its present form, and named after Queen Anne in 1702. Rysbrack’s statue of William III, which stands in the centre of the Square, was erected in 1736. Gas lights were introduced to the square in 1819.
