A must-see destination for visitors to London, Trafalgar Square is home to Nelson’s Column (a monument commemorating Admiral Horatio Nelson, who died in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805), iconic stone lions, and the famous Fourth Plinth, which showcases commissions by contemporary artists.
Visit the National Gallery, on the square’s north side, and be amazed by more than 2,000 Western European paintings from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. Enjoy a breathtaking view of Whitehall and Big Ben from the top of the stairs that from Trafalgar Square lead to the gallery. Then, pay a visit to historic St Martin-in-the-Fields church and grab a meal in the quirky Café in the Crypt downstairs.
Trafalgar Square hosts many cultural events, performances and shows over the year, and it’s also home to the biggest Christmas tree in London over the festive period, an annual gift from the city of Oslo.
