Woburn Place is a street in central London, 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 Royal National Hotel building is located in the south-west side of Woburn Place north of Russell Square, with 1,630 rooms on eight floors, is the largest hotel in the UK.[1] 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 [1].

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.
