Trafalgar Square Hotels - London

Mini guide to Trafalgar Square

     

Trafalgar Square, one of London's most famous tourist attractions, is dominated by the 185 feet high statue of Admiral Nelson standing on a column. Although Nelson looks small from the ground, he is actually 18 feet tall. The column was built to commemorate Admiral Nelson who was killed in 1805 during his victorious battle against Napoleon off the coast of Spain. Four bronze lions by Edward Landseer stand at the base of column. At Christmas each year, Norway sends a huge tree for the square, as a token of gratitude for Britain's help during WWII. One also can't forget the famous pigeons.

The area around Trafalgar Square is home to the best galleries and museums in London. The National Gallery houses one of the greatest collections of European painting in the world. The National Portrait Gallery was founded in 1856 to collect portraits of famous British men and women. Today the collection is the most comprehensive of its kind in the world.

For something different, visit the London Brass Rubbing Centre inside the St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church. A simple way to create art by rubbing brass plaques - all materials and instructions are provided. The cost of making a brass rubbing ranges from £2.90- £15.00 depending on size. There is a quaint market adjacent to this lovely church.

A wonderfully central area, Trafalgar Square is within walking distance of the theatre district in the West End, as well as shopping in and around Piccadilly Circus. Access to Trafalgar Square is via Charing Cross station (Bakerloo and Northern lines), which also services the western areas outside of London.
