Trafalgar Square, London: 248 reviews and 447 photos
Everyone visits Trafalgar Square on their trip to London, so take a few minutes to sit by the fountains on a warm summer's day, do some people watching, take pics of Nelson's Column but don't be tempted to feed the pigeons! I should really get a pic of Nelson myself to put on this tip but somehow I am always drawn to the activity around him and the fountains.
In June 05 we had the hottest summers day so far in London. A few weeks previously the powers that be decided that paddling in Trafalgar Square fountains was forbidden. The tourists didn't know this and were having a great time in the water.
There were no signs telling them they couldn't indulge in a cooling dip and the Square Security certainly weren't enforcing it - in fact they would probably have enjoyed it themselves instead of wandering about in those stifling uniforms! Well done guys - why stop people having a bit of fun if they aren't doing any harm??
