It was very enjoyable, and was indeed in the sun! Since the square has been revamped, and... More

The square is located right across the street from the Grand Pier and there are not too many nice things to see here, except for a small fountain and a lot of seagulls. Still, this place is a good place to relax a bit.

This square right opposite the Grand Pier is far too busy with traffic going to and fro, people queueing for fish 'n' chips, people sitting on the low walls eating, too much greasy litter, the litter bins are woefully inadequate for all the people who eat around here. But it is still a beautiful spot (apart from the people and... More

I experienced very contented feelings when promenading down Princess Royal Square. It made my days in Weston so utterly pleasant.

This is a very busy area, lots of eateries and seaside gift shops. It's difficult to relax here as it is a main walk way to the beach. But if you like watch, life hurry by then this is for you.

Since its refurbishment it is a lovely place to enjoy the sunshine. It overlooks the beach and has loads of sitting areas and outside cafes. Very wheelchair friendly. Also close to all the amenities of the seaside town.
