Russell Square is located close to the British Museum and the main buildings of the University of London. The center of the square is occupied by a small but enjoyable park.
The square used to be lined with large upper-middle-class homes, many of which remain standing. It was also a favorite area of many of London’s finest writers, poets, and artists, including T.S. Eliot and Thomas Lawrence. Many of them had their homes on the square. Interested in visiting this place?
