Trafalgar Square- What's not to love?
Raquelle W. Oct 20, 2013
When I used to live in South Africa my favorite part of coming home to the U.S. during the summer was having my layover in London. My family would always stay at the Trafalgar Square Hotel and then walk around the square. My favorite place, by far, in this area is Thai Square. It is the most delicious Thai restaurant with such a variety of foods. The atmosphere is in the restaurant is perfect; with dim lighting, modern furniture and a tranquil feel, you can't go wrong at this restaurant. After my family would stuff our faces with the food, we would walk off our gluttony and take a look around the square. It may not seem like much in the square but I think it is a nice area to relax and take in the scenery especially if you are only there for a short period of time like I usually was.
The heart of the world

Every time I visit Trafalgar Square I feel like I am in the heart of the world, where worlds and cultures collide, and where you can smell the past and the present haze. It's kind of paradise place in a way of people who come down here, they just want to relax and enjoy their life. Seems like they forgot about their daily problems, and just take a breath of Trafalgar freedom and happiness.
Momentous Historical Landmark--Not One to Miss!
Emily M. Apr 14, 2013
I went to Trafalgar last June with a friend; we bought sandwiches and sat outside. This London landmark is definitely one worth checking out if you're in the area. Imagining the thousands of people celebrating the end of World War Two was an experience unlike any other. While it might not have as much glitz and glam as other landmarks, it's beautiful lion statues and historical context made it one of my favorite places. As such, it was pretty crowded--and hard to get pictures without kids running around in the background--but luckily there were lots of patient people willing to help take that perfect picture. Unfortunately, since we were there right before the Olympics, there was a huge countdown clock. The clock, while a good idea in theory, clashed with the rest of the atmosphere and overall appearance. Nevertheless, I loved Trafalgar--and appreciated the clock as part of London's pre-Olympic pride.
Cool historical spot

There isn't a lot to do in Trafalgar Square, but it is a nice square at any rate. It has a lot of history, if you're into that sort of thing. The main point of interest is the column in the center, but there are a bunch of other great sculptures scattered about. The other thing to see is the fountain, which is lit up at night. It's impressive during the day, but the lights are really stunning. I was fortunate enough to be in London during the holidays, so there was a giant lit-up Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square, which was really beautiful. In addition they had a variety of carol singers performing every night, which was really wonderful. It's great to go at night during Christmastime, because you can see the square all lit up and sparkling and listen to some lovely holiday tunes at the same time.
Nice public square

This is pretty much just a tourist trap but it is worth seeing. It is a beautiful square and has a lot of interesting history to it. There are these amazing fountains in the square that are just beautiful. It will be packed with tourists when you go. The only downside is that there isn't really a whole lot of other stuff to do nearby. But I love wandering the city so that didn't bother me too much. Anyway, it is really beautiful and you should check it out, but don't be too bummed if you miss it.
