The majestic obelisk in the middle of Queen Square was erected in 1735 by Beau Nash. The square is an ideal city-centre retreat to sit out and relax in the sun.
This is the heart of Bath’s professional district. If you’re looking for prestigious but discreet offices, this is the place – if you can afford it.
The obelisk has an inscription by Alexander Pope.
Cyclists can feel smug. A cut-through allows easy access from the south, while cars have a long detour round Bath’s bizarre one-way system.
