Bloomsbury Square
go to website


Laid out in 17th century as the piazza to the Earl of Southampton's mansion, Bloomsbury Square has outlived the building it was intended to grace and now stands as a companion piece to Russell Square. Statues of eminent Whig politicians face each other down Bedford Place which connects them.

Bloomsbury Square was redeveloped in the 1960's when an underground car park was constructed beneath it. A recent refurbishment aimed to reflect elements of Humphrey Repton's 1806 layout, restore the views and link to the nearby Russell Square.
New railings and a hornbeam fence were introduced along with new paths, park furniture and landscape improvements.
