I often walk home from work this way and I understand what the planners were trying to achieve by opening up this area and it is an improvement on the previous traffic island. There is now much more pedestrian area, and quite a lot of seating, and the views from the nearby cafes are somewhat better. It is a pity... More

I assumed this was a pedestrian area but you do have to be careful busses also use this space which is a shame because on a sunny day this paved area would be quite a pleasant place to sit and while away an hour or two

Lovely views of the beach but the seating area is dismal. Could be better but it is used for good events.

+ place to sit nicely laid out. - seagulls after all the food. Screaming kids in the fountain when the beach is over the road.

After living through the whole sea front reconstruction in recent years it's a shame this area has not matched my expectations. It already feels grubby, tired and down at heel. Sat here in blazing sunshine with kids for an ice-cream and takeaway coffee - but did not enjoy it.

This square (locally still known as Pier Square) is far too crowded with queues in the fish'n'chip shop, people sitting and eating, greasy food wrappers, greasy pavement, and the pedestrian crossing takes ages for the lights to change so we wait several minutes to cross to the pier.

Love the new look, especially now the planting has matured! Lovely to sit around the fountain, plenty of seating and suitable for all the family!

Not really much to say about this space especially when the sun isn't shining. Sometimes the fountains on and sometimes not. Unfortunately the seating gets covered in seagull droppings so have a good look before sitting down. There is a carousel ride there for the summer and tables/chairs outside the fish & chip shop.

directly opposite the Grand Pier this area has been recently upgraded and is now a much more accesible area for all. be aware it is a shared area so you will see buses and vehicles that have acces but they are only using a well marked lane to travel both ways.plenty of eateries close by including the new Tuttos restaurant...
