Somehow overlooked by tourists (but not byb locals), this is a great square with a lot of green space to explore and stroll in.
While the park tends to get a bit iffy after dark, it's perfectly lovely during the day for a short stroll.
There's a Tube station nearby, which makes the place very accessible.

On our four day visit to London we breakfasted in the Russell Square cafe each day. We also walked through it several times on our way to and from various sights. We loved the leafy greenery, the birds, the fountain and the people walking their dogs. A great start to the day.

This small green space just off the main road is a lovely place to relax. The grassed areas and gardens are well laid out with a water feature in the centre and feels larger than it really is.

There is plenty of room to sit on the grass and there are a limited number of bench seats.

It is popular with all types of people, students, families with children, dog walkers, joggers, older people and so on and feels very safe.

Towards one end of the square is a small cafe which offers a wide range of light eats and drinks at resonable prices and has tables both inside and out so ideal whatever the weather.

Friends of Russell Square pitch their tent close to the entry and sell books and are a wealth of information. The park covers the four corners of once small block and is very nice. Not only is it a well maintained park, a crossing point for many people making their way through the city, but a landmark for may tourists travelling around and to near by events. Taking a cab several times, we passed this park on on way to any destination in or near the Theatre district, Strand, Trafalgar, or heading over one of the bridges over the Thames. If you are staying in the area its a great little landmark. Never really over crowded, a cafe that is open for breakfast or mid day lunch but it gets full.
