Trafalgar Square is the centre for national rejoicing and assemblies and rallies of various causes. It is on the sit of former Royal Mews and stables dating back to the days of Edward I (1272-1307). The present square was laid out between 1840 and 1845 by Sir c Barry, architect of the Houses of Parliament, part of which, 'Big Ben', can be seen to the south.

The Nelson Column, on top of which is a statue of the Admiral, is one of the London's most famous landmarks. Around the base are four bronze panels depicting his naval victories at Cape St Vincent (1797), Copenhagen (1801), The Nile (1798) and Trafalgar (1805).
