We went there during the week. No one was there speaking. We asked one of the locals and we were told the speakers are only there on Sundays at 11 am.

The only good think about this place is beautiful sculpture of a head of a horse and beautiful surrounding.

I was there on Sunday (June 24th 2018) and it was most refreshing to witness a lot of people taking on behalf of their beliefs in the flat earth. It does certainly appear to be gaining momentum. A great place to debate with all types...More

Speakers corner is open to the public daily. However Sunday would be the best time to go if you want to see lots of muslim speakers, arguments and praying in mass.
