Nice square with a nice little park area with a fountain to relax, near to the British museum and Brunswick center so handy to pass through on the way to those places or if you just want to relax for a while.

Great park to spend some relaxing time in. Grab a blanket and a sandwich from Coffee and Candy nearby and enjoy. There is a cafe inside, but we didn't know that until we got there.
