Charming and slightly shameless monument to empire, this is for many of us the centre of London. If you've not started a romance amongst the pigeons, you are not a Londoner!

Trafalgar Square sits in front of the National Gallery. But you can enjoy art in the Square itself. Check out Nelson's Column and the plinths which sit at the corners of the square. The empty fourth plinth is the site of ever changing artistic works. And everyone climbs one of the lions to take a photo.Recommended for

Trafalgar Square is a wonderful square that honors Admiral Horatio Nelson, the admiral who defeated Napoleon at the naval battle of Trafalgar. The square is huge and right in the middle is a monument with a statue of Admiral Nelson overlooking the square. Only drawback is the flock of birds that "bomb" everyone.

Famous attraction with a large column and statute dedicated to the Great British Admiral Horatio Nelson, and his great victory over Napoleon in the Naval Battle of Trafalgar, where Nelson lost hist life. There are several other cool statutes and monuments around the squareRecommended for

It's worth spending some time here, as long as you don't mind a crowd. There is a lot to see and some great photo opportunities, as well as the national gallery nearby.

There is always action and great people watching in Trafalgar Square. It reminds my of Time Square in NYC but with tons more personality

Another if London's most famous squares, Trafalgar was high on my list of things to visit. Unfortunately, there was construction and preparation for a massive concert going on while I was in town, so most of what I got to see was partially covered or obscured. The area is nice, however!

This famous square is more of an interesting stop-over or walk-way when you're getting from one place to another, but it's also worth noting that it's a major (and convenient) meeting point. That means it's not only a great place to meet your friends before going somewhere harder to find, but it's also where you might see political protests, large-screen broadcasts of important football (soccer to Americans) games, or, in winter, largescale Christmas celebrations alongside a giant Christmas tree.

Trafalgar Square is one of the more interesting places in London as it's more of a living monument. Located in the heart of the city surrounded by restaurants, offices, government building and the like, Trafalgar Square blends culture with a mixed lesson in history. The square is named for the Battle of Trafalgar, a naval battle in which Lord Nelson defeated Napoleon's fleet off the coast of Spain. It was a pivotal moment in the Napoleonic Wars but cost Nelson his life. A statue of Nelson surmounts the large column. At the north end of the square is an equestrian statue of Charles I, the only British monarch to ever be executed. There's also a statue of George Washington that sits on soil donated by the State of Virginia to honor GW's oath that he would never set foot on British soil again.

My first visit here was as a young child and the size, spectacle and atmosphere impressed me , leaving a lasting curiosity that when unsatisfied for many years. Why a column for this great man? and only three lions; Obvious now for his greatest Victory (pun intended!) was achieved by the use of ships in two coloumns, instead of the normal broadside to broadside, it was a huge risk that paid off startlingly, and the three Lions, there are only three on the English Flag!!!!Recommended for
