Trafalgar Square is just one of those must-see sights. Yes it’s just a square, but it provides hours of entertainment. Chasing birds, climbing lions, running from the whistle blowing Bobby, having a cuppa and people watching…and the enjoying latest street performers. The square hosts a...More

Trafegar square is near to many theatres, stores and is also a busy square. There you can feel the heart of London and the variety of cultures living in the same city

It’s just one of those things you have to do when in London. Crowded during the day, much prettier and quieter during the evening. Avoid the crowds and head in early or late.

Happened to be there on the Feast of Saint George so it was really crowded along with live entertainment and food. Not a huge square.

The square is pretty impressive itself, fountains and the staue of Nelson towering above. Check the black paintings on the side of the column as they depict the glorious battle of Trafalger. The square is surrounded by beautiful architecture. I am surprised that the mayor...More

It's not close, it's around 20mins walk from Trafalgar Square through "The Mall" and it will take you straight to Buckingham Palace.
