Trafalgar Square @ London

Trafalgar Square, the largest square in London and it is often regards as the heart of the city. This area has been a central meeting place since the middle ages. In the middle of the square stands a tall column honoring admiral Nelson who was a British flag officer famous for his service in the Royal Navy, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars. He was involved in the most notable war which was the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, during which he was shot and killed. The battle was the most decisive naval victory of the war. The British victory spectacularly confirmed the naval supremacy as during the Battle of Trafalgar, 27 British ships were against 33 French and Spanish ships which Britain had won at that time.

This site is always crowded with visitors/tourist. I would recommend to combine a visit to the National Art Gallery just off the main square.
