The site of Trafalgar Square was officially named in 1830. In 1832, work began on the National Gallery - located right on the Square. The famous landmark Nelson's Column was erected here in 1843 - to celebrate Admiral Horatio Nelson, who died at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Today Trafalgar square includes fountains and statues - and it is surrounded by museums, galleries and historical buildings. It is also famous for its pigeons! It is a popular place for protests, cultural celebrations, rallies and demonstrations. Photo Credits: Paul Sivan, Anthony Ingham,
