“Somewhere to sit”
Reviewed 11 November 2012

So this is what they built to replace the beach lawns that used to sit here.

There's not much to say about it really. It's a paved area full of seating and quite busy on a summers day.

It's surrounded by chip shops and bars so it's easy enough to get a drink or something to eat. It's an ok place to sit and get away from the rest more dilapidated parts of Weston.

Cars can drive in and out as they please. (It's technically only buses and taxis I think, but no one seems to care) So might want to keep an eye on small children.

“watch you dont get run over”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Princess Royal Square is a 'free space' so pedestrians, vehicles etc all share the same space with no pavements etc. it is an accident waiting to happen. Some nice seating areas and it is nice and flat so easy to access

“Open Space mainly pedestrianised.”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

Eat, relax, enjoy the fountain and the views. A short walk from the Grand Pier and the seafront. Lots to do and see from this location.

“Great place to sit and chill.”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

This is a lovely clean, spacious place to just sit and watch the world go by,places to sit and grass to sunbathe or have a picnic on. The central fountain has semi circular seating round it, so there are always plenty of people sitting eating fish n chips from the nearby chip shops, or just an ice cream. At night, the square looks stunning, with columns of colour-changing lights. The square is just across the road from the Grand Pier, and just a stone's throw from the main shopping area.

“Modern Plaza”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

This modern plaza, has a number of bars, restaurants, and nightclubs fronting it. The wide open space is used for markets, shows and displays. There are a number of seats around the traditional fountain. Close to the sea front, pier and shopping centre.
An ideal place to sit with a coffee or ice cream and avoid the crowds.
