About Russell Square

Russell Square is located in central London between the capital's Square Mile and primary business district to the east and the Marylebone area to the west. It's one of the city's quieter locations and is mostly residential. The peaceful atmosphere and convenient location combined with its proximity to the transport hub of King's Cross station makes it an ideal destination for all manner of travellers, regardless of budget. There are many cheap hotels close by as well as several in the 4 star category. Despite being near King's Cross, which provides transport access to the entire city as well National Rail services and access to the Eurostar, Russell Square itself is on the Piccadilly Line and there are a reasonable amount of bus services.


Russell Square is surrounded by niche museums as well as those of the more general variety. The British Museum is widely considered one of the world's best historical and cultural venues and is a must-visit attraction, with over 7 million artifacts - that's roughly one for every person in London! Also within walking distance are the Cartoon Museum and the Charles Dickens Museum, whilst King's Cross with its National Rail services allows visitors to explore the rest of the country. The popular shopping destination of Oxford Street is approximately a 15 minute walk from the station and the British Library is even closer. There are also a few local theatres in the area.


There are a number of unique dining experiences in the Russell Square area, the most remarkable of which is Archipelago with its rather exotic decor. It is, however, a venue for the brave as the biggest surprise comes on opening the menu. Some of the more pedestrian options include crocodile and kangaroo, whilst the more adventurous can try a garlic locust or chocolate covered scorpion. If all of this is rather starting to put you off - don't worry! Russell Square is also home to some more traditional eateries, including French, Italian and Greek venues as well as some good old fashioned English cafes.


Whilst Russell Square isn't exactly known for its thriving nightlife, there are a few local pubs and bars. For a night out on the town you'd be better off heading two tube stops south to Covent Garden, which is renowned for its exciting nightlife and is full of clubs, bars and pubs. For a night out with a difference the Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes are just a 5 minute walk from the station, where you can rattle some pins to the sound of rock n roll. The American themed venue purportedly houses the only vintage above-lane ball return outside of the US.
