Trafalgar Square is a site of significant historic and cultural value.

John Nash developed the area in 1812 as “a cultural space, open to the public.” In keeping with Nash’s vision that the area should be a public cultural space, the area was redeveloped and reopened in 2003 with improvements to the wider area of the square and the removal of traffic from the north side.

To the north of the square are the world famous art galleries,  The National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery and to the east stands St Martin-in-the-Fields, a welcoming place of peace renowned for its music and architecture.

 This Easter come and explore the heritage found around the area.

Many famous people lived and worked near the square. Treasure hunts In London offers you the chance to explore the area and discover who they were and where they lived.
