    Bloomsbury

    Bloomsbury is an area of the London Borough of Camden, in central London, between Euston Road and Holborn, developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fashionable residential area. It is notable for its array of garden squares, literary connections (exemplified by the Bloomsbury Group), and numerous cultural, educational and health-care institutions. 

    Bloomsbury.

    Bloomsbury contains some of London's finest parks and buildings, and is particularly known for its formal squares. These include:

    • Russell Square, a large and orderly square; its gardens were originally designed by Humphry Repton. The square is a short distance from Russell Square tube station.
    • Bedford Square, built between 1775 and 1783, is still surrounded by Georgian town houses.
    • Bloomsbury Square has a small circular garden surrounded by Georgian buildings.
    • Queen Square, home to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
    • Gordon Square, surrounded by the history and archaeology departments of University College London, as well as the former home of John Maynard Keynes, the economist. This is where the Bloomsbury Group lived and met.
    • Woburn Square and Torrington Square, home to other parts of University College London.
    • Tavistock Square, home to the British Medical Association; its eastern edge was the site of one of the 7 July 2005 London bombings.
    • Mecklenburgh Square, east of Coram's Fields, one of the few squares which remains locked for the use of local residents.
    • Coram's Fields, a large recreational space on the eastern edge of the area, formerly home to the Foundling Hospital. It is only open to children and to adults accompanying children.
    • Brunswick Square, now occupied by the School of Pharmacy and the Foundling Museum.

    Bloomsbury - Bedford Square. 

    Bedford Square is probably London's most complete and best-preserved Georgian square. It was laid out in 1775-1786, possibly by builders Robert Grews and William Scott. Each of the sides are treated as continuous facades with emphasis provided in the centre.
