About Russell Square

London is full of parks. So many parks, in fact, that by some classifications, the city could technically be considered a forest.

And many of those parks are some of the most famous locations in this already famous city. Places like Hyde Park and St. James's Park are not only great places to relax and enjoy a bit of nature in a busy city but have been the settings for famous scenes from books and movies for years.

Russell Square may not be quite as famous as those legendary parks. And it's certainly not as big. But this small park, laid out in 1804, is one of those locations in London that is astonishingly rich in history.

The Hotel Russell on one side of the square was built by the company behind the construction of the Titanic. Famous poet T.S. Eliot used to work in a building alongside the Square, and Russell Square is mentioned in several important novels by writers like Virginia Woolf and William Makepeace Thackeray.

Plus, it's not just the square itself. Russell Square occupies an area of central London that is known for its artistic, cultural, and intellectual attractions, including the nearby British Museum. Take advantage of our convenient luggage storage facilities near Russell Square to get access to the best luggage storage options in the city.

Can I store luggage at a hotel if I'm not staying there?

In a city like London, space is always at a premium, so many hotels only provide luggage storage services for guests. However, if you can't find hotel luggage storage, Bounce can help. We partner with local businesses including hotels, local shops, and restaurants to make sure you can always find a convenient location to leave your things behind. Our luggage storage app lets you book luggage storage in advance online, and our luggage facilities allow you to leave luggage of any size for an entire day or longer. Bounce ensures hassle-free travel wherever you are.

Which London stations have left luggage lockers?

In general, only the larger London stations offer luggage storage locations. You'll find a left luggage service at stations like Victoria, Paddington, King's Cross, Charing Cross, and St. Pancras. However, smaller stations and London Underground stations usually won't have a storage facility.

Where can I store luggage at the London Museums?

London museums vary, but is quite common that they don't allow large bags inside. Besides, you wouldn't want to carry big bags around with you anyway. Many museums have a cloakroom where you can leave bags, but space is often limited. A better option is to use a luggage storage service like Bounce so that you know you have a luggage storage location that is convenient for you.

Can I leave luggage at the British Museum?

The British Museum offers a cloakroom at the main entrance. However, there is a limit on what you can store here. Bags that weigh more than 8 kg and measure more than 40x40x50cm are not permitted at this luggage storage service. Also, while entrance to the museum is free, using luggage storage is not, and will cost you a few pounds, depending on what you want to store.

How to get to Russell Square

The closest London Underground station to Russell Square is, unsurprisingly, Russell Square. On the Piccadilly line of the UK capital's extensive subway network, Russell Square is one of the smaller Tube stations, but thanks to being the closest station to the British Museum, is also one of the busiest.

The Piccadilly line makes Russell Square extremely easy to reach. In fact, it's just one stop on this line to one of London's biggest and busiest train stations, King's Cross - St Pancras International. It's just six minutes from this major train station, with connections across the UK and throughout mainland Europe, to Russell Square. An adult Tube ticket costs £2.70, but you can save yourself money and hassle by buying a day pass if you intend to spend a lot of time on the subway.

The Piccadilly Line also connects Russell Square with London Heathrow Airport. It takes about an hour to get from the airport to Russell Square Station, but it's probably the cheapest and most convenient way to reach central London from this major international airport. It only costs £5.60 to make the journey, so it's a great option if you're staying in the area.

Things to do near Russell Square

British Museum

It's probably not going to surprise you to see the British Museum on this list. After all, it's the presence of this museum, one of the most extensive and most popular in the whole world, that brings millions of tourists to Russell Square each year.

The British Museum is undoubtedly one of the best in the world. The sprawling collection covers just about every civilization on earth, from Egyptian mummies to Pacific Northwest totem poles to grave goods from one of the most splendid archaeological finds in British history.

Highlights of the collection include the controversial Parthenon Marbles, some of the most impressive and most important examples of ancient Greek sculpture in the world. The splendid treasure from the Anglo-Saxon burial at Sutton Hoo is also one of the more spectacular exhibits.

But really, visiting this museum is like taking a tour through the whole of human civilization. Even if you're not a big history buff, you're guaranteed to find something that will impress you here. Best of all, the museum is free to visit for anyone who shows up, making it one of the best things to do in London on a rainy day and one of the most popular attractions in this heavily touristed city.

How to get to the British Museum

The British Museum lies right next to Russell Square, so it's an incredibly short walk from one to the other. Russell Square is also the nearest Tube station to the museum. Drop off your bags at one of our luggage storage facilities, and you'll find it very easy to get to the Museum and enjoy what it has to offer.

The Foundling Museum

For something completely different, check out this lesser-known but fascinating museum that delves deep into the darker side of London's history.

The Foundling Museum was founded in 2004 and tells the story of the Foundling Hospital. This was the UK's first home for at-risk children, and it was instrumental in supporting orphans and neglected children in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Given the heavy subject matter, there's no denying that some of the exhibits at the museum are quite sad. However, it's also inspiring to see all the work that has been done to develop this charity and make life easier for kids who get a bad start. If nothing else, you'll come away with a deeper understanding of what it takes to support some of society's most vulnerable people.

How to get to the Foundling Museum

From Russell Square, it's a walk of just eight minutes to reach the Foundling Museum. Drop off your things at a luggage storage near Russell Square, and you can easily make your way to this intriguing attraction.

Aldwych Station

The London Underground is a great way to get around, but it's not normally considered an attraction in itself. However, this tube station is worth a visit to see a side of London that even many locals never have.

Part of the Hidden London network of sites, Aldwych Station is an abandoned part of the London Underground network. First opened in 1907, the station never got the traffic that was expected for it and was eventually closed in 1994.

Used as an air raid shelter during the Second World War, this disused station now allows you to see parts of the Underground network you normally wouldn't. Available to visit by guided tour, you can explore the tracks, the platforms, and the tunnels of this fascinating urban secret.

How to get to Aldwych Station

If you're feeling energetic, you can walk to Aldwych Station from Russell Square in about 20 minutes. Otherwise, you can take bus route 91 from Southhampton Road to Aldwych Drury Lane, which will take about the same amount of time.
