The perfect location to catch breath and appreciate Hong Kong’s architecture

Bordered by Connaught Road and Des Voeux Road, and split into two sections by Chater Road, Statue Square was created in the 19th century and until World War II was home to statues of various British royalty, including Queen Victoria. The only statue that remains is that of Sir Thomas Jackson, a head of HSBC in its early days. It is surrounded by various Hong Kong landmarks, including the former Legislative Council (currently as the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal), Hong Kong Club Building, LANDMARK PRINCE’S and Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong. Today, Statue Square is a popular spot for Central’s office workers to enjoy an alfresco takeaway lunch.
