Place Gordon

Gordon Square est situé au sud-ouest dePlace Tavistock, à environ 10 minutes à pied du Crescent Hotel of London.

Construit entre 1820 et 1850, Gordon Square porte le nom de Lady Georgina Gordon, l'épouse du duc de Bedford, qui a conçu les jardins.

Une oasis de flore et de faune à Bloomsbury

Gordon Square a été construit par Thomas Cubitt comme un double développement avecPlace Tavistock. Les propriétés du côté ouest de la place ont été les dernières à être achevées (vers 1855), ce qui en fait l'un des derniers bâtiments à être inclus dans le portefeuille de Cubitt.

Many of the original features had been lost or had decayed over the years, but in 2006 (with the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund), many of them were refurbished. Now, the curving paths and traditional railings appear as they would have, while a programme of planting and tree maintenance has allowed the gardens to return to their former glory.

Gordon Square Today

Gordon Square is owned by the University of London and is a favourite with students and academics who reside nearby.

The former gardeners hut has been repurposed as a small kiosk, selling a range of drinks and snacks that keeps the hunger and thirst of its visitors at bay.
