A photowalk around Bloomsbury

  • Jun 15, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Bloomsbury is home to a large number of Blue Plaques and beautiful Georgian architecture and squares.

Join us on a leisurely photowalk taking in some of the beautiful architecture and open spaces in the area. The meeting point is outside the main entrance to the Western concourse of Kings Cross station

Our walk will take us past:

The Brunswick Centre (1970s brutalist architecture)

Brunswick Square

Mecklenburgh Square *

Queen Square

Russell Square

SOAS Japanese Roof Garden **

Woburn Square

Tavistock Square

Gordon Square

UCL

Fitzroy Square *

BT Tower

Senate House

Bedford Square *

Bloomsbury Square

Sicilian Avenue

Ending at Holborn tube station by which time we'll probably need liquid refreshment!

Squares marked * are normally not accessible to the public but as this is Open Garden Squares Weekend if you have a ticket, available for £10 from http://www.opensquares.org or £12 on the day from a participating garden, you can actually go in to the square itself rather than peering through the railings.

** The SOAS Japanese Garden is only accessible with an Open Garden Squares ticket.

If it's as warm as it has been recently make sure you apply lots of sunscreen and bring some water with you.

    Very interesting. I never knew that such places were hidden in the side streets. Thanks Keith!

    Not sure I'll be able to make it :( Should I change my RSVP to No? I won't be sure until tomorrow morning I'm afraid.

    Hey Keith - what do you mean by western concourse? I'm a girl - give me a shop or something as a landmark! ;)

    Just a suggestion , perhaps slightly moving the location to meet up location to the recently created public plaza in front of Kings Cross Station. There are lots of benches and photo opportunities to. Can't wait for the meet up !

    I'm going to have to pass on this one. Work commitments. Freeing up my space for someone else. Have fun guys!!

    There are quite a few people on the waiting list for this meetup. If you are now not able to come, please change your RSVP to no so that someone else can attend. Thanks!

    Further to Keith's comment... We also frequently post events at fairly short notice... So watch this space as they say, stay tuned =D

    We are all volunteers and do what we can, when we can. We aim to have at least one meetup per month if at all possible. With the numbers who come, they take a lot of planning and organisation that has to be fitted around our full time jobs and family commitments. Hopefully see you at an event soon.

    Is there any reason why the events are less regular over the summer? I want to come along but can't join this one as I'm away that weekend
