What a lovely green space in the middle of a very built up area behind the Brunswick shopping centre at one side and Great Ormond Street Hospital at the other. The square is surrounded by old town houses. There are benches to sit on and...More

This is a pleasant, quiet green space just across from Brunswick Square shopping center with an oasis of very large London Plane trees including one which is notably ancient and is supposed to be among the ten largest in the city. A nice place for...More

We had been enjoying a lovely stroll through central London and had been to see the British Museum. By chance, we passed through this pleasant small city square. Having already enjoyed a rest in nearby Russell Square, we had no need to pause here for...More

Worth visiting to see one of London’s 10 great trees – the Brunswick Plane. It doesn’t stand out because there are other London Planes that also look impressive. Next door to Coram’s Fields, an artificial football pitch is visible, several kids were playing on it...More

This garden is surrounded on three sides by town houses, and Coram's field on one side. As it is just waking distance from our house on John Street, we in the evenings take our walk here. A peaceful garden, not very big, but sufficient to...More

leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated

Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
