Built between 1775 and 1783 as an upper middle class residential area, the square has had many distinguished residents, including Lord Eldon , one of Britain's longest serving and most celebrated Lord Chancellors , who lived in the largest house in the square for many years. The square takes its name from the main title of the Russell family, the Dukes of Bedford , who owned much of the land in what is now Bloomsbury.

Bedford Square is one of the best preserved set pieces of Georgian architecture in London, but most of the houses have now been converted into offices. Numbers 1-10, 11, 12–27, 28–38 and 40–54 are grade I listed buildings . The central garden remains private. Bedford College , the first place for female higher education in Britain, was formerly located in (and named after) Bedford Square.

Bloomsbury is an area of the London Borough of Camden , between Euston Road and Holborn . It was developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fashionable residential area. It is notable for its garden squares , [2] literary connections , and numerous cultural, educational and health care institutions. Bloomsbury Square was laid out in 1660 by Thomas Wriothesley, 4th Earl of Southampton . [3] Much of the district was planned and built by James Burton . [4]

Bloomsbury is in the parliamentary constituency of Holborn and St Pancras . The western half of the district comprises Bloomsbury ward , which elects three councillors to Camden Borough Council .

The earliest record of what would become Bloomsbury is in the 1086 Domesday Book , which states that the area had vineyards and "wood for 100 pigs". [3] But it is not until 1201 that the name Bloomsbury is first noted, when William de Blemond, a Norman landowner, acquired the land. [6] The name Bloomsbury is a development from Blemondisberi – the bury, or manor, of Blemond. An 1878 publication, Old and New London: Volume 4 , mentions the idea that the area was named after a village called "Lomesbury" which formerly stood where Bloomsbury Square is now, [7] though this etymology is now discredited.

Founded in 1847, as a night school, the AA opened as a day school in 1901 and moved to Bedford Square in 1917. The school that originally occupied 34–35 Bedford Square now inhabits 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39 Bedford Square – the entire sweep captured in the image above, and 4 + 16 Morwell Street (behind Bedford Square) too.

Hooke Park, our 350-acre woodland in Dorset is the other very beautiful and significant part of our school. It is home to an experimental facility for developing new construction techniques using timber and comprises of residential buildings and workshops for full-time and visiting students. http://www.aaschool.ac.uk/AASCHOOL/HOOKEPARK/hooke.php

Today the AA retains the many unusual, idiosyncratic qualities of the kinds of ‘found’ event spaces that generations of students and teachers have embraced as the essential character of our school. The stately Georgian rooms in Bedford Square appropriated and transformed in to L-shaped lecture halls, members’ rooms, a central bar and other shared social spaces, as well as characterful buildings, largely built by our students, and nested in the woods at Hooke Park, together represent a domestic, non-institutional architecture, unusual for any school, anywhere.

The Greek passion for life, beauty and of course food, ensures a joyous eating experience at Mythos. The menu is a superb exploration of authentic Greek cuisine. You can enjoy a variety of Meze, or traditional cooked meals such as Kleftiko and Mousaka, or meat, fish and seafood dishes as mouth-watering alternatives. You can also enjoy some lovely light lunch options in pita and a delectable range of salads. Vegetarians are well catered for and as a tantalizing end to a fine meal, the desserts are breathtaking. Home made Baklava, Halva and Greek yoghurt served with nuts and honey, are but some of the delights on offer.
