In Focus – Bedford Square

Tottenham Court Road underground station, London (exit 1)

Guided by

Streets Ahead! More trail blazing by the best urban walking tour guides on the planet. In Focus walks are an extremely detailed look – "what I love about London Walks is the degree of granularity you get" (as that American visitor memorably put it) – at the most famous streets and squares of London. And their tributaries. Today's In Focus walk explores Bedford Square, past and present. London has over 700 squares. The square is London's principal contribution to the urban experience. Bedford Square is, by common consent, the most perfect, the most beautiful square in London. You'll see that immediately. By walk's end you'll understand why and how that happyy state of affairs came about. And of course the ghosts it's populated with (to say nothing of the flesh and bloods who are there now) are jaw dropping. Just for starters two chaps who reigned as "the most hated man in England." What one of them in particular did – well, it'll agitate every well, I never electrode in your system; and as for what he got up to in his spare time – well, strap yourself in for one of those Can You Believe It? rides. It gets better – Bedford Square is what's known as a Key Square. No access to the public. But we're going in there (providing there's not a private function on on the day). Mary Jane's got access. Pretty good, wouldn't you say! This is a great walk. The Bedford Square In Focus walk has been created and is curated (guided) by by top flight Blue Badge guide Mary Jane.It gets better – Bedford Square is what's known as a Key Square.
