EVENTS & HOTELS NEAR TRAFALGAR SQUARE

Trafalgar Square

The largest square in London, Trafalgar Square was developed by John Nash in the early 19th century to become a hugely popular and cultural open space for the public. Two centuries later and this legacy is still going strong.

From community celebrations and parades to large scale events; Trafalgar Square has acted as the ultimate backdrop for London’s vibrant history. New Year’s Eve, St. Patrick’s Day and West End Live are just a handful of the most popular annual events.

But it’s not just the events that make Trafalgar Square a location not to miss. It’s got some permanent features that are well worth visiting too. There’s the towering (145-foot in fact) Nelson’s Column, designed to honour Admiral Nelson after his victory in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Guarding the base of this statue are the four iconic bronze lions. There is also a set of plinths featuring historical bronze statues to marvel at - one of General Sir Charles James Napier in the southwest, Major General Sir Henry Havelock in the southeast and King George IV in the northeast. The fourth plinth in the northwest of the square was long left empty, but now features world-class commissions of contemporary artwork that change regularly.

Surrounded by museums, theatres and historical buildings like the National Portrait Gallery and Her Majesty’s Theatre, it’s the perfect central spot to begin your exploration of London.
