The Trafalgar Square is an energetic area containing the Nelson’s column designed by William Railton. It’s a permanent commemoration of the great English hero victor of Trafalgar battle. His honor statue is wonderfully sculpted in granite sitting on a bronze platform memorizing some of the hero battles. On its side, huge sculpture of two lions are designed to protect the statue.

In Trafalgar square, you will  also find other amazing representations of Britain’s most famous figures: In the northeast, stands King George IV. Nearby in southwest the square, you will find the General Sir Charles James Napier statu while in the southeast stands proudly the Major General Sir Henry Havelock. What emphasize most the charm of  this place are the prestigious fountains of tritons, dolphins, mermaids and sharks.

You can admire unique works of art legends van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci and Titian in The National Gallery at the north side of the Trafalgar square or take a visit to St. Martin-in-the-Fields, one of the most beautiful churches in London.
