Russell court backs on to the Brunswick Centre, which has a variety of supermarkets, loads of restaurants ranging from Sushi to American burgers, there is also a cinema showing all the latest films.
Russell Court is only a short walk from Russell Square and was designed by the 5th Duke of Bloomsbury who gave his surname to the square. It’s an extremely impressive large square with loads of lush green grass, and it’s extremely popular in the summer months with people having picnic lunches. It has some of the largest houses around the square in Bloomsbury, the west hand side is owned by the University of London and directly behind that is the UCL.
Russell court has a high proportion of owner occupiers in the building; this is because of a clause in the head lease restricting buy to let landlords in the development. A lot of owners like this as they feel it keeps a high level of occupiers in the flats.
