A view of the National Gallery from Trafalgar Square. The square was built around the area formerly known as Charing Cross. At its centre is Nelson's Column, which is guarded by four lion statues at its base. The square is also used for political demonstrations and community gatherings, such as the celebration of New Year's Eve. The name commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar, a British naval victory of the Napoleonic Wars over France and Spain which took place on 21 October 1805 off the coast of Cape Trafalgar, Spain. The original name was to have been "King William the Fourth's Square", but George Ledwell Taylor suggested the name 'Trafalgar Square'.
