Holidays in Trafalgar Square
Holiday Travel Guide

A fantastic reference point for locals and visitors, this bustling square is home to one of the nation’s most treasured monuments.

Constructed as a tribute to commemorate the British Victory at Trafalgar in 1805, this lively square attracts a staggering 30 million visitors each year. Famous for its iconic statue of Admiral Lord Nelson, known as Nelson’s Column, the area has for decades been a gathering point for political rallies and New Year celebrations.

Take some time out of your busy sightseeing schedule and spend a little time sitting by the two tulip-shaped fountains in the Square. Join the vast crowds of visitors as they cast their gaze skywards to marvel at this phenomenal national monument.

Trafalgar Square is officially owned by the Royal family and is undeniably patriotic, with various bronze-cast British heroes scatted across the area. Having featured in many films, the square has become a notorious spot for feeding the many pigeons. Visitors need to be aware that there is now a ban in place, preventing visitors from feeding them.

A stone’s throw from Trafalgar Square you’ll find the entrance to the National Gallery, an outstanding home of timeless art. If you have a few hours to spend, St. Martin-in-the-Fields church is well worth a visit. Situated close by, this Anglican Church was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and today holds a variety of choral, chamber and jazz concerts. Visitors should check out the programme online to see what’s on offer.

If you’re visiting in the winter months, the square has a festive lights display as well as London’s largest Christmas tree.

Trafalgar Square is located in the city of Westminster and is easily accessible by bus and by subway. The nearest underground station is Charing Cross.
