Queen Street (Chinese: 奎因街, Pinyin: Kuí Yīn Jiē) is a road through downtown Singapore. One of the oldest streets in the city, it covers a long distance beginning at the junction with Arab Street in the northeast, and ending at the intersection with Stamford Road (where it continues as Armenian Street).

Due to its length, Queen Street has a complicated traffic flow. From Arab Street until the turning in to Fu Lu Shou Complex parking lot, the traffic flow is in a single direction heading south. Between Fu Lu Shou Complex and the Singapore Management University, it is in two directions, but approaching Bras Basah intersection, it is reduced to one direction going north. From the intersection of Stamford Road to the intersection of Bras Basah Road, traffic on Queen Street is also in one direction, heading north.

As with the adjacent Victoria Street, Queen Street is believed to have been named after Queen Victoria, if not Queen Charlotte. It was an enclave for Eurasians in the 19th century, and today, we can still see the Catholic churches and schools that they built in the area, among them the Church of St Peter & St Paul, St Joseph's Institution (new the Singapore Art Museum) and the Catholic High School.
