Queen Square is set in Bloomsbury an area within Central London that is extraordinarily near to Russell Square tube station. Before tube stations were even thought of the square sat quietly on the edge of London looking out towards Highgate & Hampstead. which nestled peacefully on the hills stretching northwards.
It was set out in 1716 at which point in time it was called Devonshire Square. Later it was renamed in honour of Queen Anne who followed her brother-in-Willaim III to the throne and found it right lovely and warm. (He was known the world over for his warm bum.) When Queen Charlotte's Statue was dumped in the gardens everyone naturally assumed the square had been named after her. The muddle was in full-swing and rumbled on over the centuries 'cos that's what history is like. Now watch the film and have all your questions put to bed.
