The one eyed and one armed good ol' Admiral Horatio Nelson. Britain's greatest war hero has been given the highest spot in the city. This is the most central point in London geographically and touristy as hell. The whole column including 4 lions has been copied by many countries and the cheap looking smaller replicas can be found in many different cities around the world. During WW2, Hitler was so impressed with this imposing powerful structure that he ordered German air force to not bomb it so he could move and reinstall it in Berlin. Even though the statue is high above and far away from any vandalism but it's the favourite spot for protesters of various causes who have a habit of climbing to the top to make their point. It's also been a victim of lightning and pesty pigeons which is why it has to be steam cleaned every now and then. Wish the Royal Navy would employ some snipers 24/7 in honor of him to shoot all the pigeons that crap everywhere as well as the people who feed them.

Nelson's Column is a tribute to Lord Horatio Nelson who was killed in the Battle of Trafalgar which took place in South West Spain. The column has 4 lions at the base and is located in Trafalgar Square. There are a number of fountains in the square and at Christmas time the square plays host to a Christmas Tree donated by Norway as a reminder of what the British did during the Second World War. If you want to see Nelson's Column it's easy to get to from various different locations and the nearest Tube station is Charing Cross which is served by the Northern and Bakerloo lines.

Nelson's Column is in the middle of one of London's busiest traffic intersections., Trafalgar Square. The Column is 170 feet (50 metres) tall. Admiral Nelson led the English fleet to victory at the Battle of Trafalgar, the Royal Navy's greatest victory By the way, look out for trhe lions at the base of the Column.

Nelson's Column is in the middle of Trafalgar Square. It is one of London's greatest landmarks. The column is 169 feet (51 meters) tall. Admiral Nelson commanded the fleet that defeated Napoleon's navy at Trafalgar and saved England from invasion. We had a good look at the column when we went to the National Gallery, which is nearby.

We were on a hop on hop off bus and just had to stop here, the column is the focal point of the square, surrounded by lions, it can be seen from quite a distance.
