In this documentry series, we strive to share some of the great things and information about London with our friends and family in Sri Lanka, that we are privy to as residents in the UK.

Trafalgar Square could be considered one of the most popular attractions in the Centre of London. The main attractions within the square include Nelson’s column which is situated in the middle to commemorate Admiral Nelson who died in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Also the famous Lions, the two water fountains with mermaids and sea creatures and the four plinths with the statues of English war heroes.

The National Gallery is on the northern side of the square and has a collection of over 2000 paintings from the 13th to 19th century.

Since 1735, No 10 Downing Street is the official residence of the British Prime Ministers. Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher and currently Boris Johnson are some of the British Prime Ministers who have lived in this historic building.

Whitehall (the road) runs from Trafalgar Square passing Downing Street towards the Houses of Parliament. The administrative functions of the British Empire were controlled from here.

Horse Guards Parade is the large ceremonial grounds near Whitehall and the place for the annual Trooping the Color in June for the Queen’s official birthday.

The Cenotaph is a War Memorial which was established after the First World War (WW1) to honour the fallen war heroes from all conflicts since then.
