About Trafalgar Square
Trafalgar Square is a hugely popular open-space tourist attraction in the London borough’s City of Westminster. The square lies immediately north of Charing Cross Tube station and is home to Nelson’s Column, a monument that stands over 50 metres tall and depicts the British Napoleonic War hero Admiral Horatio Nelson, who died in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The square also features two large fountains and is one of the most recognisable parts of London. Directly behind Trafalgar Square are the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery, both of which are extremely popular destinations for tourists as well as local London residents. The Square is only a short way south of Leicester Square and the heart of the West End theatre district, with the River Thames and areas around St James’s and Buckingham Palace also within easy walking distance.

Things to do in Trafalgar Square
Trafalgar Square is undoubtedly one of the best places in London to simply take in the view and watch the world go by. It is such a historic and well-known destination that it is quite amazing to see up close. There are also plenty of other local attractions to investigate, such as Downing Street and Big Ben, or Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. For high calibre places to eat in the local area, you could try Scottish-themed Albannach or the extraordinarily opulent Boyd’s of London. For quality local pubs you could always investigate the Sherlock Holmes or try the Harp on Chandlos Place towards Covent Garden.
