Stay In a Russell Square Hotel

If there’s one thing that London does well, it’s parks—peaceful, well-maintained spaces that provide respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. Russell Square is no exception. Luckily, Kimpton Fitzroy London couldn’t be closer to this slice of green. Bookworms should take note: The small park has a starring role in “Night and Day,” a 1919 novel by Virginia Woolf, who lived nearby. Grab a croissant and flat white at Burr & Co., then head across the street to enjoy a morning al fresco—there’s no better way to start the day.
