Just across the road from the pier at WSM. A mix of paved and grassed areas. The fountain is the only thing really worth seeing.

This is a pleasant place to sit and people watch if you want to rest your legs for a few minutes. But it’s definitely not a destination of its own right so I wouldn’t recommend making a special detour.

The Pier Square is much improved from the days when it was simply a water fountain surrounded by busy traffic, though you still have to look out for buses which cross the square from time to time. Now there are plenty of seating areas to...More

Located close to the pier, arcades and Sovereign shopping centre. This paved area is surrounded by fish and chip take always and restaurants, with a central fountain. Of an evening an ideal place to watch periodic firework displays. Close to bus and coach stops.

The square is located right across the street from the Grand Pier and there are not too many nice things to see here, except for a small fountain and a lot of seagulls. Still, this place is a good place to relax a bit.

Something and nothing really, when it's sunny it's full of holiday makers eating fish and chips which attract the very numerous seagulls!!!! Flipping hazard!! Tends to get a bit messy with rubbish at busy times
