Owner description: Considered to be one of the finest Georgian squares in Britain, this plaza has maintained many of its elegant, old buildings on all four sides.

Charlotte Square is stunning, don't get me wrong. But the 20th century was not kind to this gem of the New Town, and the 21st continues to be cruel. This glorious space is full of traffic, and it's a tragedy.

Great location for the annual book festival. However rest of year is also very well kept and clean. Lovely buildings. Road structure is a nightmare though!!

This is a beautiful square and if you stand at the entrance from George Street you can see all the way along to St. Andrews Square. It has superb architecture and worthy of walking around and going to the Georgian House.

This is a lovely part of Ediburgh to walk around - it is very well laid out with beautiful buildings and gardens to admire.

Saw a brilliant children's illustration exhibition here at the NTS HQ. As home for the Edinburgh Book Festival it has a good atmosphere in August. The bit in the middle's great.
