Trafalgar Square - Review

The Trafalgar Square is an iconic place to visit in London. It is truly the most important cultural landmark of Modern London. Whether it’s a celebration of a festival, a manifestation for a cause or downright political turmoil, Trafalgar is the hub of activity where everything happens!

There are a few different structures worth regard in this place, the lions and Nelson’s column being a few of them. Perhaps the most interesting part of Trafalgar Square is “The Fourth Plinth”.

Initially, the fourth plinth at the site had been left unoccupied but the last few years have seen it be occupied by controversial and eclectic modern art. Currently, it hosts a giant blue Cockrell, which has been the source of many a discussion and debate!

Being there truly makes you realize the historic nature of the place. It is definitely an experience to be had. Sit down on the steps to watch the people or take a leisurely walk around, the choice is yours but do not miss this place.

Trafalgar Square, London Reviews

  • A very beautiful place with statues and fountains. A very popular tourist attraction in London. If you are taking the sightseeing bus tour, you should not miss visiting this place . I highly recommend this place for families. Enjoy the fresh air and stunning view. Overall very good experience. A must visit.

  • Trafalgar Square is always busy with plenty of events being held here. It's easy to get to with lots of pedestrian crossings to assist with access. The fountains are beautiful, especially at night and there is a stunning Christmas tree every December gifted by Norway. There are public toilets here located at the bottom of the sweeping stairs. There's lots to see and do around the square too. There are plenty of places to eat and drink near by.

  • Lively place in the middle of all hustle bustle. You can easily spend entire evening here with friends and family. Just walking distance from here you can get good food outlet options also. Getting public transport from here is also not a problem. There are lion statues here onto which if you can climb, you can click lovely pics..

  • Star Events was setting up something. Canada House looked nice. Went to see something in a painting at the National Gallery that my cousin pointed out last year before the world changed. The painting was not there. Important discoveries and messages received.

  • Trafalgar Square is a great place to spend time during the long summer days. In addition to seeing great attractions directly on the square, including the world class National Gallery, the impressive National Portrait Gallery and historic St. Martins-in-the-fields Church, it is also well worth just lingering around the square to relax and enjoy your time. Do walk around to see some of the statues and structures at Trafalgar such as Nelson's Column and statue, the Equestrian statue of King Charles, other statues found on the four large plinths, in front of the National Gallery. the busts against the north side of the square and four huge lions around the base of Nelson's Column. There are two lovely fountain pools at Trafalgar Square. These are attractive during the day and night as well, when they are illuminated. In addition to visiting the attractions at Trafalgar Square, you can then proceed through the Admiralty Arch, along The Mall or through St. James Park towards Buckingham Palace. Or you can make your way east along The Strand to see likes of the Courthauld Gallery at Somerset House or the Temple Church grounds. Alternatively, you can watch or listen to a performance in pretty much any direction from Trafalgar Square as this is also in the theatre district of the city. In the end, there are so many good reasons to spend time in Trafalgar Square. We very much enjoy it here during the summer when its warm outside and the days are long. You can just set on the steps in front of the National Gallery and watch life go by on the square. It is great!
