Located close to the pier, arcades and Sovereign shopping centre. This paved area is surrounded by fish and chip take always and restaurants, with a central fountain. Of an evening an ideal place to watch periodic firework displays. Close to bus and coach stops.

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