The Heart of London

The enormous stone square, located in Westminster, takes its name from the Battle of Trafalgar, a British naval victory over France in 1805, during the Napoleonic Wars. Built of granite, sandstone, bronze, and victory, Nelson’s Column stands tall in the center of the square, in remembrance of Admiral Horatio Nelson, who lost his life in the very battle for which the square is named. Accompanied by two, wide, misting fountains, the column appears to also be guarded by four large, bronze lion statues. Today the sprawling, public space serves as a place of celebration on New Year’s Eve, a stage for protests and demonstrations, and a beautiful, stone expanse for tourists to wander and explore.
