International Travel — U.K.
Trafalgar Square was built in honor of Admiral Nelson after
his victory in 1805 at the Battle of Trafalgar.
The column (which stands in the heart of Trafalgar Square) was designed by John Nash in the 1830's — it stands 185 feet
high and supports a 17-ft. high statue of Nelson.
this famous square and fountain is popular with tourists and locals
alike... even the pigeons flock here! It's a fun place to hang out and people-watch.
Trafalgar Square is located in the heart of London. It forms the
junction of some of the London's busiest streets the Strand,
the Mall, Whitehall and Charing Cross Road.
