Trafalgar square is really quite good place to chill out. You can sit there peacefully and can take amazing view of the place. It's good place to take pictures. It's also have national gallery near by, if by any chance you have interest in painting/art.

The square has a large statue of Admiral Nelson with a lion that is striking. It is considered the Center of London and can be reached by the Piccadilly Station (blue line). Lots of activity and very busy but a must see!

Trafalgar Square is fantastic. There’s so much to do from museums, statues, and lots of little vendors selling things. There’s also tons of live music in the area. Sometimes opera, sometimes a guitarist. It’s a great place to spend a few hours.

If you go expecting to see the pigeons, you'll be disappointed. Apparently, they've found a way to greatly reduce the amount of pigeons in the Square, which isn't a bad thing. It's a heavily populated area containing mostly tourists, although Buskers and some just hanging...More
