Gordon Square is a public park square in Bloomsbury, London, England. It is part of the Bedford Estate and was designed as one of a pair with the nearby Tavistock Square. It is owned by the University of London. The square contains many London plane and other trees, a number of flower beds and grass plots between the serpentine gravel walks through the square. There are two statues which have been installed in recent years: a sculpture of the Indian poet, philosopher and Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), was unveiled by HRH The Prince of Wales in July 2011 (sculptor Shenda Amery). In November 2012 a memorial bust of Noor Inayat Khan (1914-44), was unveiled by HRH The Princess Royal. Noor had once lived nearby; an SOE agent who infiltrated occupied France, she was executed at Dachau Concentration Camp and was honoured with the GC, MBE and Croix de Guerre.
