An iconic place in literally the centre of London.  Trafalgar Square is home to Nelson's Column and the lions.  There are also three plinths containing different historical figures.  The four plinth is currently used for temporary works of art and it changes every year or so.  I have heard rumours that the exhibits are temporary as long term, this plinth is reserved for a statue of Her Majesty after she departs.  Other things to look out for here is the smallest police station in London and the Charles I roundabout just below the actual square marks the official centre of London from which all distances are measured.


Around the square are two of the best art galleries in London - The National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery (shouldn't they call the other one the National Landscape Gallery?).  Both are free entry, so worth a look here as well to see some of the well known paintings.  Across the road is St Martin in the Fields church, which has a café in the crypt and does lovely cakes and lunches.


You must not go to London without paying a visit to Trafalgar Square.

Lovely square, esp in the summer. It's lovely to dangle your feet in the cold fountain when it's really hot outside!
