“Tatty, messy and not pleasant”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

After living through the whole sea front reconstruction in recent years it's a shame this area has not matched my expectations. It already feels grubby, tired and down at heel. Sat here in blazing sunshine with kids for an ice-cream and takeaway coffee - but did not enjoy it.

“Too crowded”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

This square (locally still known as Pier Square) is far too crowded with queues in the fish'n'chip shop, people sitting and eating, greasy food wrappers, greasy pavement, and the pedestrian crossing takes ages for the lights to change so we wait several minutes to cross to the pier.

Love the new look, especially now the planting has matured! Lovely to sit around the fountain, plenty of seating and suitable for all the family!

“Princess Royal Square”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

Not really much to say about this space especially when the sun isn't shining. Sometimes the fountains on and sometimes not. Unfortunately the seating gets covered in seagull droppings so have a good look before sitting down. There is a carousel ride there for the summer and tables/chairs outside the fish & chip shop.
