Russell Square is a London Underground station on Bernard Street, Bloomsbury, not far from the British Museum and Russell Square Gardens. Opened on 15 December 1906, the station is located in Travelcard Zone 1, and is between Holborn and King's Cross St Pancras on the Piccadilly Line. Nearby British Museum tube station was closed in the 1930s. According to a old myth there's a tunnel from this, now redundant, station to the British Museum Egyptian room.
