Beautiful Town Square In London



Trafalgar Square (English: Trafalgar Square) is a "square" in central London named in memory of the Battle of Trafalgar (1805), a battle at sea in which British Navy warships won the Napoleonic Wars. The place's previous name was "King William the Fourth's Square", but George Ledwell Taylor suggested changing the name to "Trafalgar Square". Now Trafalgar Square is often used for walking. In the center of Trafalgar Square there is a monument that contains a statue of Admiral Horatio Nelson, the hero and leader of the British Navy who was killed in the Battle of Trafalgar. This monument is called the Nelson Column.

In the center of the square is the Nelson Column, built in 1843 in honor of Admiral Lord Nelson, shot and killed in action as commander-in-chief of the British army in the battle of Trafalgar.

The 145-foot (nearly 50 m) high marble column is topped by a statue of Lord Nelson and guarded by four lions, built with melted bronze from the French Navy canon.

On the north side of the square is the National Gallery and in front of it are two impressive fountains that light up as night falls.

In Trafalgar Square there are also statues of famous people such as George Washington which were given to England by the State of Virginia. The statue was placed on cement specially brought from the United States, as Washington vowed never to set foot on British soil again.
