塔维斯托克广场建于 19 世纪初，最初由詹姆斯伯顿建造，然后由托马斯库比特完成。 在他们之间，伯顿和休伊特负责伦敦市中心许多历史悠久的街道和广场。
塔维斯托克广场距离伦敦新月酒店非常近，步行 5 分钟即可到达。 BMA House（英国医学协会总部位于广场东侧，Connaught Hall（伦敦大学宿舍）位于西侧。
Work on Tavistock Square began in 1806, with the project being completed in the 1820s. The garden was laid out in 1825 and, although it has since been completely refurbished, much of the original layout has been retained.
最近，在塔维斯托克广场安装了雕像，以纪念圣雄甘地（1968 年）和弗吉尼亚·伍尔夫（2004 年）。
Tavistock Square is home to a cherry tree that was planted in 1967 in memory of the victims of the atomic bombs that hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It also has a memorial that honours the victims of the 7/7 bombings, which took place nearby.
