Located in the heart of London, Trafalgar Square is a large pedestrian square built in 1843 to commemorate the victory of Lord Nelson. This square was named after the Battle of Trafalgar when the British Navy won over France and Spain. Whether it’s a festival celebration, a manifestation for a cause, or political turbulence, this is the hub of activity where everything happens.

The star attraction here is Nelson’s Column – a great structure that pays tribute to the UK’s popular naval hero. This 50-meter-tall column is guarded by huge statues of four lions built with melted bronze from the Spanish and French Navy canons. Also, there are statues of General Gordon, Henry Havelock, Charles James Napier, and the equestrian statue of George IV. The place is surrounded by many important sites and attractions and can be a starting point for any adventure in London.
