We stayed across from Seymour Square, it was a perfect picture of flowers, the water feature which looks wonderful all lit up at night, and being able to hear the bell tower

Visited on Friday 18th May. We stopped here to have a look at the fountain and the War Memorial Clock Tower as well as the neat gardens.

I discovered this by chance heading back to the hotel to get something in the evening. It made me late but was worth watching.

When we arrived, they were changing the flower beds, we were so lucky, otherwise the flower beds would be bare. A great quiet and peaceful ground to rest, to meditate, to stroll. Very well maintained, great for families.

My kids just loved hearing the clock tower chime and a lovely place to wander around. In the heat the water fountain provided joy and cool.

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.
