Trafalgar Square is one of the most visited squares in London. It was built between 1829 and 1841 by John Nash to commemorate Admiral Nelson’s victory at the Battle of Trafalgar. Nelson’s column and the four giant bronze lions lying on its base are the most striking features and the main tourist attractions in Trafalgar Square.

Other renowned monuments are the equestrian statue of Charles I, the fountains built in 1939 and the National Gallery which is found on the north side of the square.

Lots of people enjoy feeding pigeons in Trafalgar Square and at Christmas it hosts the largest Christmas tree in London which is given by Norway’s capital, Oslo, as a symbol of gratitude for the support it received during World War II.
