Bedford square is one of the most impressive squares in central London, owned by the Duke of Bedford this impressive square has a private gated garden in the centre that was designed in the 17th century for the residents of the square. Each side of the square is a block of buildings that have equally impressive Georgian houses which look directly into the lush green square.
The square does not open to the public apart from in June for the Open Garden square weekend, Bedford Square is one of London’s best Kept squares.
The square is very unique; it has kept a lot of the charm that it was originally built with, including the black London street lamps it also has a vast walking area around the square with wooden benches for people to sit and take in the elegant Georgian houses, all the houses have been tastefully maintained.
The Bedford Estates who own and manage the area let out the square for corporate events, some of the universities use the location for the end of term graduations.
There have been some very famous residents over the years, the famous architect who designed the square, Thomas Leverton, Prime Minister H H Asquith and the second Duke of Devonshire.
The residents have changed over the years, and now most of the grade 1 listed buildings have been converted into offices, where some of London’s premier business are residents.
