There is not really a lot to see on this square except a few nice art pieces. Through the civic square and the seabridge you have easy access to the ‘waterfront’ area.

Walk, sit or just wander, this place has a delightful setting to relax in. You pass this on the sea to city bridge.

This place seems to be a little unplanned and just happened but it is a square and a square is better than no square but it could be better. It does have toilets.

Very interesting buildings mingled well together, well planned and signposted for visitors. Unfortunately most of the buildings were closed as it was their Christmas holiday. I would expect it is a very vibrant area during the day
