Description

Set deep in the heart of central London, Tavistock square is one of the gems of insider London knowledge.  It is a small park set within a small square and right in the centre there is one of the best sculptures this writer has ever seen, of Ghandi sitting cross-legged, quietly musing about the world.  The park itself is dedicated to the famous figures of the Indian independence movement but practically if functions as a great little spot for locals, workers and students to spend their 20 mins in the sun while eating lunch.

In 2007 the square was catapulted absurdly into the national and global media because it was one of the sites of the London bombings of 7/7.  A suicide bomber blew himself up on the number 8 bus as it passed through the square. A travesty against peace especially when you consider who is sitting at the centre of the park.

For visitors to the city I highly recommend this place as a spot to catch your breath, it may now have a sort of contorted and contradictory history but this shouldn’t put you off, its a beautiful little space and an important piece of London's history.
