“Car crime”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

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!!

“Enchanting Square”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

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.
