Queen Square

What is it?

Wikipedia:  Queen Square is a square of Georgian houses in the city of Bath. It was the first speculative development by the architect John Wood, the Elder. Wood lived in a house on the square. Numbers 21-27 make up the north side which was described by Nikolaus Pevsner as "one of the finest Palladian compositions in England before 1730". 

Where is it in Bath?

Queen Square is to the north-west of the city centre, roughly midway between the Abbey and the Royal Crescent. At its centre is a garden containing an obelisk.
