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!

I have lost count of how often I have been to Trafalgar Square - I have seen street performers, protest rallies, crowds on a hot, (well, warm) summer's day and performances by musicians, actors and even poets. I love this square by night, especially at Christmas time, and the National Gallery at it's highest point is a national treasure! With views down to Big Ben, and buses and tube trains just a few feet away, this is one of the iconic views of London you must not miss!
5 stars more would be given if possible An iconic site - the 3 lions and Nelson who saved this county at the time They have street food vendors street entertainment music protests art fountains surrounded by art galleries pubs restaurants A must place to go when in London Did I mention the 3 lions the symbol of England at its best Go there when in England or miss out on a great place and be forever sorry you did QUESTION When in the square Nelson has a telescope under his arm Go to the savoy in the Strand and stand opposite side of road Look at nelsons column and then see what he seems to be holding 😲
One of the most happening places to be at in London. It's always hustling and bustling with tourists and locals alike. The mammoth roaring lions are emphatic and majestic. You cannot miss this square if your traveling or living in London. You can visit here using any available public transport as pretty much all of them pass from here.
Great place to visit, a must for anyone visiting London. The square itself is surrounded by shops, restaurants, art galleries, theatres, museums and bars, truly something for everyone. During our visit we saw demonstrations, varying from fair elections in Mozambique to equal rights for women. Amongst this there were some interesting street performers, from dancers to musicians, which were all amazing. Perversely I watched as the equal rights group insist the street performers reduce the volume.
Main tourist attraction. Nice when climbing Nelson's Column - if you can get up there - and chilling out. There's a museum close by and other attractions. You can't visit London and not be here. Accessible by bus / tube / car very easily
