The Garden

The largest of the University of London gardens is named after Lady Georgina Gordon, second wife of the 6th Duke of Bedford and was developed by master builder Thomas Cubitt in the 1820s. 

In 2007 the garden was formally reopened by HRH The Princess Royal following a restoration project that included reestablishing the original path layout. Today, Gordon Square has a distinctly rural feel in contrast to more formal gardens in the Bloomsbury area. In recent years the garden has been developed to encourage wildlife and a recent survey identified over 100 species of plants in the wild areas.
