Bournemouth squared is mainly a pedestrianised area, but there is a road passing through it which is for buses and taxis only. It is always heaving with buses. A typical lunchtime stroll will see you passing 20-25 buses, parked all over the place and then moving off in both directions. Can be a precarious operation trying to cross the road.... More

Fantastic square, very different from any other street I've seen in Bournemouth. You can find here anything you need... café, restaurants, market, shops. All you need is just a step from you, including an amazing green area ending in front of a great beach.

As town/city squares go, this one's quite plain... It's normally busy, but unfortunately inhabited by annoying skateboarding idiots. Also unfortunately close to a Tesco. Close to the gardens, which are much more beautiful.

Just a nice place to be..........either for coffee or just to walk through. It links the Lower Gardens to the Upper Gardens and traffic free.
