Trafalgar Square is a major intersection of London. The statue celebrates the victory of Admiral Horatio Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar over the French. Enjoy the swarms of pigeons and climb up on the lion statues.

I'll begin my walk here, having arrived via the Underground to Charing Cross or Trafalgar Square stations. Art lovers must tour the National Gallery. I stopped in to visit my favorites, Rembrandt and Vermeer.

From Trafalgar Square, I take Whitehall to Westminster.

London Walking Guidebooks
"Rick Steves' London" (Compare Prices): Updated yearly, this book describes several wonderful walks in and around London, in addition to travel tips and sights to see. Rick Steves is always the first source I go to when planning a vacation in Europe.
"Frommer's Memorable Walks in London" (Compare Prices): An excellent guidebook to enjoy truly interesting walks in London. I enjoyed several of the walks and was never disappointed in discovering nooks and crannies and history I would have missed otherwise.
