I loved my time spent in this square. I took some excellent panorama photos. I visited very early in the morning so I do not know how beautiful the place is when it is crowded but I believe the sight is unforgettable.

Beautiful architecture, statues, fountain and an ideal place for city gatherings. We came once for the Xmas market and again for the 10km run. Its a perfect mix of history but also serviced by modern pubs and restaurants.

I don't often go to this side of town but I love Albert Square, especially at Christmas time when all the stalls from the Christmas Markets are up and it becomes the heart of the city. I don't find it as a busy spot during the rest of the year but it's getting more restaurants around it and it's always... More

I love visiting the square during the food festivals and at Christmas when the markets are on. The atmosphere is lovely and a great day out.

Always worth a visit to Albert Square, usually some sort of festival going on. The Christmas markets are not to be missed and lots of Bars and cafes surrounding.

I have wandered through this area a lot in my lifetime, but would never class it as an attraction in itself. The events held in it are more of a reason to visit.
