Georgian style buildings square, nice but not a must see.
Sep 2020
Georgian style buildings square designed around the middle of the 18th century. In the center there's is a green area with a pinnacle. It is nice, but there are nicer places to visit; however it is in the center of the city.

WORTH A SHORT STOP
Sep 2020
This is a large, rather sparse square with a huge obelisk commemorating Frederick, Prince of Wales. Compared with Bath's numerous parks and gardens this is rather a dull place with quite busy roads surrounding it.

Surrounded by traffic cones at the moment!
Aug 2020
A nice square - we were staying at the Francis hotel with a room looking over it - but rather spoilt for the time being by lots of traffic cones and road works!

City square surrounded by Georgian architecture
Aug 2019
This is a beautiful city square surrounded by the Georgian architecture that Bath has become famed for. There are plenty of places to sit to enjpy an ice cream perhaps in the warmer weather, for people watching, to stop for a chat or just to relax.

Delightful Old Bridge
Mar 2020
A delightful square surrounded on all four sides by Georgian houses; all being listed buildings. Very impressive. The park in the middle is a good size and access makes it open to the public. We were amused to see a few games of boule/petanque taking place so the park is well used by the locals. There is a large obelisk in the centre which was erected in memory of tFRederick, he then Prince of Wales. A place to vist and enjoy a little piece inside the park

Passing through
Feb 2020
A square much enjoyed by locals in the warmer months; in February however, really used as a walkthrough, though this hampered by the west side being closed not only to traffic but also to pedestrians pretty much; works apparently for the "charging clean air zone" which will continue until May. The pop-up Bath Boules event in June is always popular.

Building work spoils experience
Feb 2020
This large garden square must be a boon in summer. In February it was a bit too cold to sit for long. In any event the building work within the square is so noisy that you would not want to stay.

Pleasant square
Dec 2019
This Square was built in the 18th century and is situated in the centre of the city. The Georgian buildings around the square are very imposing and the majority are almost certainly Listed structures. There are several benches where you can sit but unfortunately, the square is encircled by roads so is not the ideal place to chill out. In the centre is a large stone obelisk which was erected in 1738 by Beau Nash in honour of Fredrick, Prince of Wales. The Jane Austen Centre is located nearby and the Royal Crescent is not too far away. Worth a visit.

Lovely Market...
Dec 2019 • Couples
Roughly equidistant between the Roman Baths and The Circus, Queens Square was a very pleasant Christmas/knick knack market with some great food offerings (try the four cheese toasted sandwiches). I have no idea whether there’s a market here outside of the Christmas period but we spent at least half an hour perusing and eating and most enjoyable it was too.
