Russell Square is the largest residential square in London, and sits close to the British Museum in Bloomsbury.
It was laid out by Humphrey Repton in 1800, and given the family name of the Duke of Bedford. James Burton designed many of the original houses around the edge, but those on the north and south have been heavily amended, and the ones on the east were demolished altogether to make way for the Russell Hotel.
