Trafalgar Square

Named in honour of the British naval victory at the Battle of Trafalgar, Trafalgar Square is a public square that features a number of historic sculptures and plinths, most famously Nelson's Column at the centre and the Fourth Plinth, which showcases changing works of contemporary art since 1999. The square is also a popular site for gatherings and demonstrations, such as climate change and anti-apartheid protests. Every Christmas season, a Norway spruce is erected in the square (as a token of appreciation from the Norwegian government for the UK's support during the Second World War) for twelve nights in the lead-up to Christmas.
