Overview

This square is a large garden in the middle of Bloomsbury and is close to the British Museum. Russell Square was once a upper middle class neighborhood during the 18th century and one area of the square holds a plaque that commemorates the fact that T.S. Eliot worked in a building there for many years as the poetry editor of the magazine, Faber & Faber. The garden has gone through different transformations during its existence, but currently houses a cafe and the centerpiece is a fountain that sprays water from jets and has become quite popular with young children during the summer.
