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.

It is a park that is very well preserved and the plants are nicely maintained. I see many nice flowers and trees !! It is a nice location to relax !! That is why you also can see many patients and their companions from the hospitals and institutes that are located around the square spend some time on the fresh air and around such beautiful environment!!
