  • Stands very high...so l zoomed in for details of the Statue of Nelson... very interesting.. part of the History...
  • A beautiful monument to Lord Nelson. It's a nice place to go and you can get some fantastic pictures. The history of Lord Nelson is also a part of the amazement of this place.
  • Amazing place with great history. Of course one of the must see things in London.
  • What can i say.....magnificent looking column. Good open space in front of the National Gallery
  • Bonfires lit in celebration of the end of WWII cracked the west side of the Dartmoor granite pedestal. This crack was preserved during the 2006 refurbishment rather than fixed in order to conserve the consequences of that heated moment of victory. This is a victory monument so such damage is rather fitting.

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.
