With its elegant period buildings and attractive public spaces, independent shops and sought after restaurants, it’s easy to see why so many businesses make Bloomsbury their home.

Garden Squares

Take a stroll through Bloomsbury and you’ll never be far from a glorious Georgian garden square. There are ten garden squares in all, each nestled among the elegant period properties that line Bloomsbury's leafy streets. Some, like Russell Square, are open to the public, while others, such as Bedford Square, are private spaces.

The Bedford Estates are proud to be custodians of some of these historic green spaces. Our dedicated team of gardeners tend these havens of nature, conserving their heritage and ensuring they give pleasure to visitors throughout the year.
