Highlights

  • Home to the National Gallery
  • Houses one annual giant sculpture
  • Take a photo with Nelson’s Column or the huge lion statues
A short walk from Westminster Abbey is Trafalgar Square, an expansive public area filled with bustling crowds, art, and activity. The square is home to the National Gallery.

It’s also known for Nelson’s Column, a monument built to commemorate Admiral Horatio Nelson who died in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. It’s flanked by four bronze lion statues on plinths, but it’s the fourth plinth that attracts the most attention since this plinth houses contemporary artworks, including, most recently, a gigantic blue cockerel.
