Venture off the main roads in Bloomsbury and the back streets open on to a small, tranquil square. It is bordered by several old hospitals and 18th century houses. There is even a church and pub thrown in. This is Queen Square. This unexpected gem is overlooked by a statue of Queen Charlotte. And legend has it that she rented a small space beneath the pub, The Queen’s Larder, to keep supplies for George III who was being treated by a doctor in the square. The history and the ambience are bound to draw you in. Queen Square is well worth a stop.
Queen Square is in Bloomsbury, London, WC1N 3AT. The closet tube station is Russell Square, which is on the Piccadilly Line. It’s a two minute walk from there.
