A beautiful Square where Virginia Woolf lived
in a house on the south side of the square
bombed in the war & now a huge hotel. This
bust in my picture shows how she was commemorated
in the area. It also shows the organiser of the Virginia Woolf guided tour which I went on planned by the Virginia Woolf Society.
Also nearby,the house of Charles Dickens (one of many)
& the plaque to the victims of the July bombing
This is a lovely square to relax in, and although it is surrounded on all sides by traffic, the tall trees and beautiful railings prevent the noise from becoming overpowering.
I ususally walk through here on my way to work and to the library and it really is a beautiful shortcut to take.
Tavistock Square looks especially attractive in the autumn.
Another interesting feature of this square are the various memorial trees, benches and statues, dedicated to locals and world leaders alike. There is also a discreet memorial to those who lost their lives in the 2005 London bomings (which happened close by).
Definately a great place for a stroll, there's even a dog run to let your furry friends off the lead safely!
