Trafalgar Square, London

 

Trafalgar Square, London's most famous, was laid out in 1829 to 1841 to commemorate Nelson's victory at the Battle of the same name in 1805. Dominating the square, on a column that is 185 feet high, is the 17 foot high statue of Nelson himself

Around the base of the column are the four giant bronze lions by Landseer. Around the sides  are the church of St Martin's in the Fields (left) and the National Gallery (right) which houses one of the world's richest collections of paintings
