Trafalgar Square and the statue of Lord Nelson in London, England. Trafalgar Square is a square in London that commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar (1805), a British naval victory of the Napoleonic Wars according to Wikipedia. Sir Edwin Landseer's Lions guard the outside diagonals of Nelson's Column. Much more interesting in person than in a written description; hopefully this video gives you a feel for the place. More than a day trip from Thornbury Castle, and certainly worth the travel! (You can view this video, and other travel videos in full-size and near-DVD quality, travel stills and more at www.jpmeyer.com). Thornbury Castle is part of the von Essen Group of hotels, "a private collection of individual country house hotels in the UK, each with a distinctive style and character of its own" according to www.vonessenhotels.co.uk, but we think of it as Real People having Real Fun!
