Russell Square

Russell Square is one of Bloomsbury's larger open spaces and is laid out as a park, with lawns, trees, a fountain, flowerbeds, a pergola, and a cafe at the north east corner. The surrounding area is high profile and includes the University of London, the British Museum and a number of superior hotels. The name is a consequence of the square being part of the Bedford estate - "Russell" is the family name of the Duke of Bedford and the surrounding area has many names containing "Bedford", "Russell", "Woburn" and "Tavistock".
