Bedford Square is a garden square in the Bloomsbury district of the Borough of Camden in London. Built between 1775 and 1783 originally as an upper middle class residential area, today most of the houses have been converted to offices. The square has had many distinguished residents through the years, including Lord Eldon, one of Britain's longest serving and most celebrated Lord Chancellors, who lived in the largest house in the square. Bedford Square takes its name from the main title of the Russell family, the Dukes of Bedford, who owned much of the land in what is now Bloomsbury. Bedford Square is noted as one of the best preserved set pieces of Georgian architecture in London. The building is on the North side of the square and being Grade I listed it benefits from some impressive original features. The accommodation is arranged over lower ground, ground and three upper floors with the offices being air conditioning throughout. Tottenham Court Road and Goodge Street tube stations are equidistant from the square.
