Gordon Square is in Bloomsbury, London. It was developed by Thomas Cubitt in the 1820s, as one of a pair with Tavistock Square, which is a block away and has the same dimensions. As with most London squares the central garden was originally for the private use of the residents of the surrounding houses, but it now belongs to the University of London and is open to the public. The university submitted an application for a refurbishment of the square, including the reinstatement of railings similar to the originals, in early 2005.
