A quality, mixed use public realm space. Mary Le Port Square draws attention to the rich heritage of this historically significant site, whilst providing a safe and inviting place for Bristol’s residents and visitors to enjoy. Set to the west end of the new Castle Park development, it links the Old City with the park and offers a stunning gateway to the new Tate Bristol modern art gallery at its heart.
The shell of St. Mary Le Port church provides the setting for a secluded woodland garden – a place of quiet and tranquility. Surrounded by the original ruined walls, fused together with sleek contemporary additions, the materials and construction methods create a juxtaposition between the old and the new.
