Trafalgar Square This great gathering place is the centre of London - where road distances have been measured from since Medieval times. Learn more about its history, its characters, its name and its heroes. From the 13th century to the future, from moulting falcons to 5 star hotels, join me for a stroll round the square.
Marble Arch Discover the fascinating history of the Arch and the area. First built in front of Buckingham Palace it was moved to make way for a Queen; the horse's head's connection to earth moving equipment and the grisly history of public executions. It's all here in this rather over-looked part of London, best known for its terrible traffic.
