Woburn Place

Woburn Place is a street in central London (WC1), England, named after Woburn Abbey. It is located in the Bloomsbury area of Camden.

To the north-west is Tavistock Square and to the south-east is Russell Square. Past Tavistock Square the road becomes Upper Woburn Place until the junction with Euston Road. The large Royal National Hotel building is located in the south-west side of Woburn Place north of Russell Square and the British Medical Association building is at the junction of Upper Woburn Place with Tavistock Square.

Property values are high in this area. For example, in 2005 a freehold office building at 19–29 Woburn Place (9,400 m2, 101,000 sq ft) was sold for £22.6 million [http://www.derwentvalley.co.uk/LATEST_NEWS/27april2005/27april2005.htm] .

The road is part of the A4200 and as such is an important thoroughfare and bus route. The nearest underground station is Russell Square to the south-west.
