A very well kept and pretty square in Blenheim. A nice area to sit quietly and watch the world go by. Worth a visit at night when the water fountain turns into different colours.

Lovely place to stroll in or sit and enjoy the fountain. This square and water feature is superbly maintained and a lovely feature of Blenheim. Close to the CBD. Really enjoy coming here.

Seymour Square is a small Square in the town center of Blenheim. At night the water fountain changes every 30 seconds Colour and the tower is blue.
