Historically Queen Square was the central gardens associated with an impressive array of Georgian Town Houses. Today the town houses are mostly hotels and businesses, but the grandeur remains. The traffic flowing around the square can be a little daunting, but the garden can be accessed via the gates opposite Francis Hotel.
The square hosts many city events, including food festivals and markets. On summer evenings locals play boules and people sit out on the lawns.
The Georgian square forms part of the architectural masterpiece connected to the Circus and the Royal Crescent, so walk up the hill and soak up the history.
