Things To Do In Trafalgar Square And Nearby
- Explore the beautiful Trafalgar Square fountains.
- Take a picture with the Trafalgar Square Lions.
- Take a tour of the art in The National Gallery. The National Gallery have made visits easier by proposing three different routes – the A, B or C. This makes a visit there more manageable. One of the best art museums located in the heart of London at the famous Trafalgar square. You have to book tickets in advance online, however, entry is totally free and in case of non rush hours they do not even check your tickets which mean you don’t have to stand in queue as well. In addition to the portraits and the paintings the architecture of the gallery from the inside is really wonderful. Recommended for a long visit for art lovers but even if you are not an art lover – still recommended for a quick visit if you’re in Trafalgar Square.
