“It was better when there was traffic”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

For some years this "square" has got worse and worse. It is now covered with empty chairs and tables outside a cafe to take the place of cars that used to be allowed around. Any entertainment is as tatty as the square. At least they have kept a few benches near the gardens opposite Debenhams, which makes a litle oasis under the trees.

“a good waypoint to finding everything”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Once you have found it you can move around the town with ease - it's a shame about the skateboarders getting in the way though

“Afternoon visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

These busy Gardens are well managed with nearby Toilets. They are close to the Beach area and a pleasant 'haven' for those wanting a bit of conveniently sited 'Peace & Quiet.' with variety.

“Vivid and interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

It´s a nice square with a good restaurant, you can sit outside when the weather is nice, sometimes there are some entertainers or musicians and form the Square you can go directly to a wonderful park with a hot air baloon and other ineteresting things.
