Queen Square is an elegant Palladian square in the centre of Bath. Built by the architect John Wood the Elder, Queen Square was one of the first Georgian developments in the city. By Austen's day, it was associated with the old Establishment; the Musgrove girls would prefer to be in a newer, and consequently more fashionable, part of town.
