Albert Square is the fictional location of the BBC soap opera EastEnders.

It is ostensibly located in the equally fictional London borough of Walford in London.

Central to the Square is the garden - this is home to Arthur Fowler’s bench, which was placed there in memory of him.

One corner of the square is taken up by The Queen Victoria Public House. It is known to residents as the Queen Vic or simply ’The Vic’, and stands south of the square at number 45 Albert Square, where it joins with Bridge Street.

East of the pub is a building with 2 flats and west of these in the southwest corner leads off to a walkway through to Turpin Way, on which the Walford Community Centre and Playground are found.

To the west of the Queen Vic, across the junction with Bridge Street, is the Beale house, 45 Albert Square. Next to that is 43 Albert Square. In the southwest corner of the square is number 41. Between numbers 41 and 43 is Daisy Lane, a pathway connecting Albert Square to Victoria Square.

On the west edge of The Square there are two houses 18 and 20 Albert Square, which have been knocked through as a single property and then later separated again. It was previously Walford’s B&B, ’Kim’s Palace’. North of the old B&B is the rear of 55 Victoria Road. A row of five terraced houses line the north edge of Albert Square. The westernmost house is number 31. The property next door is split into two flats. Number 25 was the home of Dot Cotton.

The easternmost property in the terrace is number 23, which was destroyed in September 2014 by a fire. On the northeast edge of Albert Square is a car lot, south of which is another terrace of three elevated properties. The northernmost house is number 5. A road leaves to the north at the northeast edge of the square, passing by the car lot. The middle house is 3 Albert Square. Most southerly of this terrace is number 1, originally flats with the doctor’s surgery on the ground floor, which later becomes a single house.
