Turn left at the roundabout into Lansdowne Terrace, passing the gardens of Brunswick Square on the left. Turn left into Guilford Street (you have been here before). and right into Guilford Place, opposite the entrance to Coram's Fields.

Description

Like Mecklenburgh Square, Brunswick Square was developed by the Trustees of Coram's Hospital. The gardens are now a public park and include fine mature trees. Opposite is the Brunswick Centre, built in 1967-72 and described as "the pioneering example of low-rise, high density housing".
