PMQ: Getting to know our culture hub

PMQ – a super interesting cultural, commercial and architectural landmark in our hood. Definitely a place to visit! With a long and interesting history, now a hub for cool, creative, design shops, cafes, restaurants, an exhibition centre and a place to hang out, chill and escape from the buzz of the city.

A bit of history...

The story starts in 1862 with the establishment of the Central School, the first government school in Hong Kong to provide western education to the public at the upper primary and secondary levels. Originally, the campus was built at Gough Street.

In 1889 the school was renamed Victoria College and relocated to a site at the junction of Aberdeen Street and Hollywood Road - the locale of today’s PMQ.
