  2. Very beautiful pictures !!!
    Trafalgar Square, the largest square in London, is often considered the heart of London. Ever since the Middle Ages, Trafalgar Square has been a central meeting place.
    It's a must-see destination for visitors to London. You'll often find cultural events, performances, shows and other special activities going on in the square by the fountains.
    At Christmas you'll find the biggest Christmas tree in London, an annual gift from the city of Oslo !!!
    Have a nice weekend !!!
