Trafalgar Square is a community area in Central London. The area in which is is built used to be called Charing Cross. It derives its name from the famous battle of Trafalgar that took place in the area.

Since the 1300s Trafalgar square has been one of Londons most famous locations. The square is littered with a number of statues commemorating many infamous generals and other national heroes. 

The centre of the square features a beautiful fountain that it guarded by brass lion statues which is a theme for the city.

Every year, Norway donates a large christmas tree 12 days before the 25th. This has happened for around 100 years.
