"Trafalgar Square" Trafalgar Square Tip by DUNK67
Trafalgar Square, London: 248 reviews and 447 photos
Trafalgar Square is a great place to meet people in, just recently one side of it has been pedestrianised making it a lot easier and safer to get to.
There are two fountains in the square which are a great place to cool off in the summer, I think it is tolerated but not encouraged though.
The centre piece of Trafalgar Square is Nelson`s Column, with a statue of Admiral Nelson on top of it. At the foot of the column are four giant lions, "guarding" it. The column and statue comemorates Nelsons` victory at the Battle of Trafalgar.
The Square was originally designed by John Nash in the 1820`s but he never lived to see it take its present form.
New Years Eve Trafalgar Square comes to life as thousands of partiers celebrate and bring in the New Year.
Trafalgar Square has a problem though, although it has several thousand wanted visitors a day there are several thousand unwanted visitors, pigeons. They have become a problem, especially with tourists feeding them and even people going round selling food for them.
