No. 2 Chapel Row sits on the southern side of Queen Square, in the centre of the city – a square of Georgian houses designed by John Wood the Elder in the early 18th century and paid for by Beau Nash. Queen Square has been described as the first element in “the most important architectural sequence in Bath”, which includes the Circus and the Royal Crescent. 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.
In close proximity are numerous city centre attractions, including a wide range of shopping, dining, cultural and sporting opportunities. The historic Theatre Royal is nearby and offers a wonderfully varied programme of top quality entertainment all year round, with many productions coming directly from or to London’s West End. Queen Square hosts the annual Bath Boules Festival and visiting French markets and is a very popular place to sit and enjoy a picnic lunch in the sunshine. Bath is a World Heritage city famed for its Roman Heritage and Georgian architecture. With a variety of historical sites and museums, Bath also plays host to a variety of cultural events including Bath Literature Festival, The Great Bath Feast and The Bath International Music Festival. Communication links from the city are excellent, with a direct rail link from Bath Spa to London Paddington (approx 90 mins) and Bristol Temple Meads (approx 15 mins), whilst Bristol International Airport is approximately 19 miles to the south east and M4 Junction 18 about 10 miles to the north.
