  • Easy enough to find off The Mall - you can't miss it. But you can miss the statue of the Duke at the top as the column is so wide! You need to walk away from the base to see the top.  more »

  • Good meeting point, wasn't really here for the column...
  • Reference point for bunch of walking tours, pretty close to St. James Park.
  • The statue is above the steps which lead from the Mall to Charlton House Terrace and Lower Regent Street.
  • Feel like he was compensating for something.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
