Properties to rent and for sale on Red Lion Square, Bloomsbury

Red Lion Square is a quiet but well known square positioned in Bloomsbury. It dates back to 1684, has plenty of history and a real story to tell. It has a one way road going around the outside and it is now home to both residents and places of work. The square, that used to be just a field, takes its name from the ‘Red Lion Inn’ which was a famous pub situated at the front of the field. The immediate area underwent plenty of different phases from its founding through to today. Plenty now believe it is the burial ground of Oliver Cromwell’s body after he was executed in a nearby town, now known as the area of Marble Arch.

It now has a cafe in the middle of the gardens with plenty of seating available for those passing by where you can enjoy a cup of tea and a snack and take in the immediate surroundings. Two famous statues are situated in the square, ‘Bertrand Russell’ and ‘Fenner Brockway’. If you were to visit then you can read their individual plaques and understand their background and what they are known for. Fenner Brockway is famous for his stand for race equality.

The Royal College of Anaesthetists is based on the corner which is the pedestal for the UK standards for all training and development of Anaesthesia. The square has other smaller private businesses that surround it, mostly being home to many successful london lawyers and doctors. One of the developments on the square, Tresham House, is extremely popular with people living in the community due to the spacious flats within the building.

For those that are after a quiet and tranquil setting in the heart of Central London, still within walking distance to Holborn, (Central Line and Piccadilly Line) and Russell Square (Piccadilly Line) tube stations then Red Lion Square is perfect.
