Arguably one of the most visited attractions in London, Trafalgar Square is a location in Central London that was developed purely to commemorate the Battle of Trafalgar, in 1805. The spot was originally called King William the Fourth’s Square but this was later renamed Trafalgar Square.

Central to the Square is Nelson’s Column, although there are now several related pieces of sculpture around the Square. The north of the Square is marked by the site of the King’s Mews and the south of the square is marked by the halfway point where the Strand met Whitehall. This point is known as Charing Cross and is widely recognised as the central point in London.
