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.

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.

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 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.

One of London's iconic sights, Trafalgar Square is a sometime concert hall and protest ground, as well as the home of the famous four lions. A lovely place to sit down with a coffee before heading into the National Gallery, which overlooks the square.

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

I really liked Trafalgar Square. It's like the city center and so it's a very busy place. As we went there the sun was shining and people were sitting around everywhere. At the fountains, the statues or just the stairs of the National Gallery - it was a nice atmosphere. Also, it's located near a lot of touristic sights.
