Lawn bowling, food trucks and adult beverages. This looks like a fun family day for locals. Great to walk around and experience a day for those living in Bath.

If you need a rest during a walking tour of Bath, make sure to stop here and see the Obelisk that was put up for Frederick Prince of Wales. There is a plaque associated with the Obelisk on the east wall of the Pump Room Kitchen as well.

Queens square is best visited during the boules tournament or the yearly continental market. Other than that it's a conveniently placed obelisk surrounded by grass and benches, so it's a nice place to eat takeaway or have a picnic if it's not raining.

Nice example of Georgian architecture (but it's a square, not a crescent)...really lovely to walk through en route to the city centre. Plus, apparently Jane Austen would stay at one of the units when visiting Bath (or so I read)?

A very pretty square to stroll around in. Apparently on Thursday evenings the locals play boules here. It has a lovely row of houses around it, and very pretty lawns, an Obelisk and boules ground. You can really feel the history here.

The true heart of Bath is Queens Square which epitomizes the elegance of this beautiful City. It is 10 minutes walk from all the famous sights.

We stayed at the Francis Hotel which occupies the whole of the south side of Queen's Square. The traffic around the square (one way) was fairly brisk all day long, but the square itself is a peaceful oasis with some lovely trees and a few benches. There's a particularly lovely plane tree.

On a cold, grey spring morning, this is perhaps not the ideal spot to sit for any length of time (not too bad if wrapped up for the weather). It's a nice little bit of open space in the centre. The place looked a little 'bald' because spring was not yet taking hold of the trees or greenery. I bet... More
