Goodge Street Guide

Goodge Street

is actually an underground station in London situated between Tottenham Court Road and Warren Street. It was opened back in 1907 and is one of the most unique stations in all of London because it still relies in lifts instead of escalators to bring passengers up and down from street level. Another thing worth noting is that although it is an extremely busy station, the flow of people using the station is extremely one-sided, with very few people entering the station when people are leaving, and vice versa. Goodge street is actually one of only eight London underground tube stations with a WW2 air raid shelter located underneath it.

For things to do in and around the area there is the world’s oldest museum, The British Museum, founded way back in 1753. Here there is a selection of historical artefacts, items of interest, exhibits, stands, collections, and much more on top of that, with the interior of the museum spanning 2 and a half miles. There is also Pollock’s toy museum dedicated to toys from a number of different eras, from a whole number of various cultures. There are Tin toys, china dolls, teddy bears, puppets, replicas of nurseries, and much more on top of that. This museum comes extremely highly recommended.

Russell Square Guide

Russell Square

is a large square park located in the very heart of Bloomsbury, not too far away from The British Museum. This square was designed and created by Humphrey Repton back in 1806, especially for the fifth duke of Bedford. The duke’s statue is still situated in the gardens of this park to this very day. Russell square was actually created when several brand new streets were laid out by the duke on the site of the very gardens of his former home known as Bedford house. This large green space currently features its very own cafe and is overlooked by the upmarket Hotel Russell, and Senate House of the University of London. The main feature of Russell Square is that every year it is at the heart of the Bloomsbury Festival, held annually, featuring music, cultural events, and motivational and educational talks and speeches held in October.

Other attractions in and around Russell Square include Coram’s fields, a playground for children where adults may only enter if accompanied by their child. It covers five whole acres and features a menagerie, a playground, and a park. For something a little more intellectual however, why not visit the Wiener library, the oldest library in the world, dedicated to the studying of the Holocaust, its legacies, and its causes. This library also features exhibits looking at the many aspects of Nazi life back in the Second World War. It is a real eye opener that is fascinating and gut wrenching at the same time.
