Bedford Square, built between 1775 and 1786, is London's best and most complete Georgian square. Most of the elegant surrounding buildings, with their distinctive Coade-stone entrances, are now offices, but were once fashionable townhouses. Pre-war iron railings enclose the large oval garden at the centre while shrubberies and mature plane trees provide screening. The garden's main lawn has been re-turfed, perennials have been added to borders and shrubs and trees have been well pruned. A restored summerhouse, Victorian stumpery and pocket planting of herbaceous plants provide more interest. Other historic Bloomsbury squares and gardens, normally open to the public, will also host OGSW activities – see https://bloomsburysquares.wordpress.com/ for details.
