The history of Russell Square can be seen from the trees that the neat houses on the roadside are the administrative office buildings of the school, just in time for the British children to leave school. Seeing children walking by the square, I can't help feeling that Russell Square has always been like this. Looking at generations of people learning and living, many colleges and universities around Russell Square make it full of academic atmosphere.
If you take the subway to the British Museum, this is the nearest station. The square between the Museum and London College of Economics and Politics actually feels more like a big garden, surrounded by muddy roads without renovation, with rows of seats facing a huge lawn, and an oasis in the center of the city is also a good place for leisure experience.
This is an old small garden, not far from the Russell Square subway station. There is a cafe in the park and a corner outside. There were not enough park benches to be renovated in the nineteenth century after Russell, the family name of the fifth Duke of Bedford.
This is a large city street garden in Beiqiao area. There is a big octagonal pavilion in the center of the square. There are some Impressionist sculptures scattered in the center of the square. The scale is not large and it is not as good as expected. There are several children's amusement facilities in the southwest corner, which add some color to the place. The large shade is very comfortable. The free bus Blue Cat has a stop here, west of the square.
one of THE loveliest squares in all of london.
Very fond memories of Russell Square. It was, of course, the site of one of the 7/7 bombings, but unlike Tavistock Square has moved on from that. Okish restaurant/cafe near the tube stop corner of the park, but mostly it's just great for people watching or relaxing in the shadow of the Senate House of the University of London and the Russell Hotel.
i loved it
