"In the centre of things" Trafalgar Square Tip by Marpessa
Trafalgar Square, London: 248 reviews and 447 photos
Trafalgar Square, one of London's many icons. In the centre of the square stands Lord Nelson's Column (Lord Nelson was an Admiral of the British Navy, the column is as tall as the highest mast on the ship he commanded, the H.M.S Victory: 185 feet high). There are fountains and it is a popular place for tourists and locals alike (although there are mainly tourists here in the summer).
At the time when I was at Trafalgar Square (the first time) the 2004 Athens Olympics were on - so they had numerous mini-Olympic sporting events set up around the square.
When I was here in August 2007 there were some book stalls set up in the square, nice to have a bit of a look through.
