Tavistock Square is a public square in Bloomsbury, in the London Borough of Camden

The centre-piece of the gardens is a statue of Mahatma Gandhi, sculpted by Fredda Brilliant and installed in 1968. The maquette is in the possession of her niece and was shown on the BBC television programme Antiques Roadshow in April 2013. The hollow pedestal was intended, and is used, for people to leave floral tributes to the peace campaigner.

A cherry tree was planted in 1967 in memory of the victims of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima. A generation later in 1995, a memorial to conscientious objectors was unveiled. The gardens also contain busts of the novelist Virginia Woolf and the surgeon Dame Louisa Aldrich-Blake.
