If you are staying in Bath, do check out Queens Square. Not only is it beautiful and a quiet oasis within the mayhem of the city centre, but it is the home of BRISLI which is an organisation that offers evening talks on a variety of subjects from astronomy to painting at very low prices, and houses exhibitions. The square... More

This is a nice little oasis in the center of a busy area. It's good to stop and rest your feet. The benches fill up quickly at lunch time though.

It is spring time, and eating lunch in a little park such as this one is always a good idea. Queens Square has trees, grass, benches, and all the things to make your stop there relaxing and nice to look at.

Sometimes you will find buzzing markets in the square, sometimes loads of people using the gravel areas for playing boules (quite fun to watch if not playing). Sometimes a small square surrounded by traffic!

I visited this as I was in the area. Interesting obelisk in the centre, surrounded by good quality, pretty architecture (houses and hotel). Not worth a special visit IMHO but nice if you've in the area.

I began my walk of Bath's main squares and crescents at Queen’s Square, closest to the city centre and just up the hill from the Abbey. The Square was the first speculative development by Bath’s famous architect, John Wood the elder. The palatial north façade was designed to inject grandeur into the whole area, and its Palladian style set the... More

A nice place to take a rest under the trees in Georgian Bath but there are also 4 Boules Pistes there for those who want them.

To us, this is part of Bath - do not just think if it as a "square roundabout". Tourists should come here and just sit down watching the world go by
