Statue Square, Hong Kong
(3/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Statue Square is a public pedestrian square in Central, Hong Kong. Built entirely on reclaimed land at the end of the 19th century, Statue Square consists of two parts separated by Chater Road into a northern and a southern sections. It is bordered by Connaught Road Central in the north and by Des Voeux Road Central in the south.The name is a reference to the statues, mainly of British royalty, which stood on the square until the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during WWII. Today, the only statue on the square is the one of Sir Thomas Jackson, 1st Baronet, an early HSBC banker.HistoryThe square was built at the end of the 19th century on land reclaimed by the Praya Reclamation Scheme. The idea of a square of statues dedicated to royalty was conceived by Sir Catchick Paul Chater. Initially named "Royal Square", it gradually became known as "Statue Square", a name derived from the fact that it originally contained the statue of Queen Victoria, as the square's name in Chinese testifies. This statue was ordered to commemorate the 1887 Golden Jubilee of the monarch. It should not have been made in bronze, but in marble, an error that wasn't picked up until the bronze statue was almost completed. It was officially unveiled at the centre of the square on 28 May 1896, the day officially appointed for the celebration of the 77th birthday of the Queen.

  • 在香港最有名的上海匯豐銀行總廈正對面,立法局議事旁,周圍都是高檔的精品名店,在繁華與忙碌的中環區,一處較為寧靜的休憩場所。 
  • The small park in Central District, the day has come, wander around, sit, relax, it's okay, there's a small pond with a good year.

  • 為什麽這銅像底部有三角石柱, 原來起源70年代皇后像廣場一宗, 不可思議案件有關, 話說70年代皇后像廣場附近, 成曰都有人失踪, 但很奇怪這失宗的人竟尋極都尋不到, 因此搞到毫無頭緒, 可是在這失宗人案毫無頭緒之濟, 竟有附近居民睌上見, 屹立皇后像廣場, 此昃臣銅像, 睌睌跳下來, 因此大家聯想到可能同昃臣銅像有關, 不過大家最后請了大法師, 在大法師念咒下 昃臣銅像底部竟出三角尖, 像封了昃...  more »

  • Centrally located with great views of the surrounding skyscrapers. Visited on a Saturday night and surprisingly quiet.
  • A small area of peace and quiet on the normally busy north part of HK island. Lovely views and buildings and easy to reach.
  • Good plc
  • Easy to get to with MTR
  • Crazy place to be on a weekend. The place is completely occupied by local domestic helpers and illegal hawkers. Nobody seem to be in control.
