“A wonderful stately area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This is a fabulous place, bordered by stately buildings. Well lit by night. This is a great place to look at, and take part, in the passing parade, entirely free from traffic. There are amazing statues on high pedestals - also lit. On the night we were there, there were buskers and street performers - a really festive atmosphere. Must see.
