Sights/Attractions

In the heart of Bath is Queen Square – a square of Georgian houses designed by John Wood the elder in the early 18th century and paid for by Beau Nash. The square was designed to join the houses in unison and give the impression that together they formed one large mansion when viewed from the south facing side. The focal point of Queen Square is the obelisk at the centre which commemorates the visit of Frederick, Prince of Wales.
