  • Nice place to spend your evening, you can have a great view of market and spend some quality time with yourself
  • He may not have won the Napoleonic Wars, but he was a significant contributor to his defeat, particularly since he was killed in the battle that he won which destroyed the French Navy and giving Britain control of the seas.
  • 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.

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.
