What people are saying:

Trafalgar Square, London's famous square, is located in the center of London, east of London City, north of London's downtown Soho District, south of Whitehall Street, southwest not far from the Royal Palace, moderate location and beautiful architecture, it has become one of London's attractions. Trafalgar Square, built in memory of the famous battle of the port of Trafalgar, stands a monument and bronze statue of the British Navy Admiral Nelson in the center of the square. The square is the hub of local traffic, and Charing Cross is nearby, passing by buses and the 5-line subway. The square's most prominent symbol is the Nelson Column at the southern end, 53 meters high. The monument commemorates the Napoleonic Wars admiral, the British national hero Horatio Nelson, with a bronze statue of the general on the pillars, surrounded by four huge bronze lions, and a “fourth pedestal” in the northwest corner always vacant. The city of London has rotated some modern sculptures here, where for more than a century people have loved to celebrate New Year's Eve, Christmas, or political demonstrations. To the south of the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, a famous and tourist attraction in Westminster, Greater London, was built in 1805. It is also called The Pigeon Square because of its frequent large number of pigeons. To thank the exiled Norwegian royal family in London during World War II, the timber-rich Norway placed a beautiful Christmas tree in the pigeon square, making it the main place in London to celebrate Christmas. There are always lots of people here at any time, there are tourists for a break, there are locals waiting for people or relaxing, there is always people everywhere
