Russell Square is a lovely and quiet square surrounded by lots of greenery. There are many trees, flora and plants, nice grasses, beautiful water fountain in the park square and people can be seen jogging or strolling with some even with their pets.
The square is just directly opposite to my hotel (President Hotel, you may like to read my review here about the hotel as well), with less than 2 mins of walk crossing a traffic junction. If you are taking the tube here, just alight from Russell Square station and you can reach the park in 3 mins. Its location is so central and accessible (with several public buses and even the city sightseeing buses have stops here too, with the nearest one outside Royal National Hotel which is just about 5 mins of walk).
Once inside the park, you can instantly feel the serenity and calmness from the "busy" world outside the park. Walking leisurely here seemed to slow down the life pace and teach us to appreciate the beauty of the nature and do not take things for granted.
We came here for a walk in the morning and evening but evening seemed to be colder as the cooling winds blowing (even in summer). The morning stroll is better, less crowded, fresher air and its just another lovely day ahead to start off from here.
We enjoyed this place, very soothing and peaceful and good for relaxation!
