Leicester Square

Traversed by 22 million people a year, major cinemas stand on three sides of the square offering over 12 films at any one time. Top London nightclubs such as the Hippodrome, Equinox and Maximus can be found in the the area, as well as numerous other venues nearby ready to show you a good time.

Trafalgar Square

The main hub of Central London, was built in honor of Admiral Nelson after his victory in 1805 at the Battle of Trafalgar, off the coast of Spain. John Nash designed the square in the 1830's. The centerpiece is Nelson's Column, which supports a large statue of Nelson on the top. Nelson, atop the column, looks minute from the ground but is actually 18ft high. Four bronze lions by Edwin Landseer stand at the base of the column.

Twice in the last five years I have sat in Trafalgar Square with my wife at nighttime and just stared out into the distance and looked at Big Ben and Parliment. I have wonderful memories of this square. Thanks for posting!
