“A well-maintained large public garden!”

The Queen Square Park and Garden
Ranked #919 of 1 839 things to do in London
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 November 2017

During our most recent stay in London, we had decided to visit parts of the inner London area which we had not previously explored during earlier stays.
Consequently, one day we took a pleasant stroll through the Bloomsbury neighbourhood. After having spent a short time enjoying a bit of time out in Russell Square, we continued our walk and after a short time, we arrived at the Queen Park Square.
This large city square is located adjacent to the Great Ormond Street Hospital. The square houses a large beautifully maintained garden consisting of large trees, open grassed areas and colourful garden beds. An impressive statue of Queen Charlotte, in whose honour the square is named, stands prominently towards one end of the square.
While in the square, we took the opportunity to again take the weight off our feet while seated on a park bench.
This square is one of a number of pleasant public squares featuring nice gardens, to be found scattered through the inner London area.
Well worth a visit - an ideal place to for a bit of rest and relaxation!

This is a garden square in Bloomsbury. Many buildings surrounding it are connected with medicine, particularly neurology. A statue of Queen Charlotte as well as a statue of a mother and child stands in the square.

Great for a moment of solitary contemplation particularly if you are attending Great Ormond Street Hospital.

This little square is surrounded by hospital buildings built in the late 1800s and early 1900s. (The facade of the Italian Hospital, at the south end of the square, is pretty.) At the southwest corner is the Church of St. George the Matryr, where Sylvia Plath & Ted Hughes got married. The steeple is pretty. The Queen's Larder pub next to the church gets high marks.

I sat here in the sun for a few minutes on a warm early May Sunday morning and chatted on the phone with a friend. It's worth passing through if you're nearby. The misidentified statue of Queen Charlotte (for many years thought to be Queen Anne) is notable. There's also a touching statue of a woman holding a small child, in honour of the Great Ormand Street Hospital for Children nearby.

If you want to sit in a lovely English square in this area, go to Gordon or Tavistock Squares. Or St. George's Gardens, immediately north of Coram's Fields, which is secluded and pretty, with places to sit and reflect. Queen's Square is worth passing through but not a destination, in my opinion.

dedicated to Queen Charlotte
Clearly appropriate area in the middle of so many departments of Neurology.
A green that relaxes and the demonstration that the benches are always occupied during the winter.
The statue of Queen Charlotte, wife of George III, positioned to the north, the center is offset by a small statue of a mother with child bust which is a message of love and maternal care for children that unfortunately need of neurological care.
Simple, typically English, with a big possibility of benches and staying with a good book.
