TRAFALGAR SQUARE, one of the most scenic spots in London, was built in the 1830s to commemorate the death of Admiral Lord Nelson in the Battle of Trafalgar – a battle that he won.
The nicest square in London
In my opinion this is the nicest square in London. It is a nice place to sit down and watch the world go by, or just simply to admire the 55m tall Nelson's Column.

Trafalgar Square looking towards Parliament. That is one of the four lions at the foot of Nelson's Column, normally covered with people jostling for photo opportunities.
On a sunny day this is a nice place for a relaxing afternoon. Just to peoplewatch and to walk around in the water! Very interesting.... and refreshing!
Lions near Nelson's Column
The four big Lions were added in 1867. These lions were made by Edwin Landseer.
It looks as they guard the Column.
