Queen’s Terrace runs between Orchard Place and the south end of Terminus Terrace and faces on to the north side of Queen’s Park. This part of the town was developed in the 1830s and 1840s. Before this date the area was a select residential neighbourhood consisting of a few large houses in their own grounds mostly built between 1810 and 1820. The coming of the railways and the docks changed the nature of the area and brought commercial expansion and population growth. The large houses were demolished and replaced with more modest residencies and business premises. The still-surviving 23-32 Queen’s Terrace, a row of three-storey and four-storey houses with first floor bow windows, dates from this period of development. The terrace is Grade II listed.
