  • Amazing part of London and the history located at Trafalgar Square next to the mall and Whitehall a stone's throw away from the national gallery and the portrait gallery. A short distance to both Charing cross and Leicester Square stations
  • Its monument in Trafalgar Square in central London built to commemorate Admiral Horatio Nelson, who died at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The monument was constructed between 1840 and 1843 to a design by William Railton at a cost of £47,000. It is a column of the Corinthian order built from Dartmoorgranite. The Craigleith sandstone statue of Nelson is by E.H. Baily, and the four bronze lions on the base, added in 1867, were designed by Sir Edwin Landseer.
  • This is Nelson's Column it is very iconic and it reaches to about 30 metres.
  • Very big. Called Nelson's Column because it has a statue of Admiral Nelson who was killed at the Battle of Trafalgar.
