After living through years of travel restrictions due to the global pandemic, we’ve been keen to hit the road. And the one of the first stops we wanted to make was London. It’s a glittering city, filled with history, culture, miles of green space and excellent places to dine out. As New Yorkers, our first love will always be Gotham. But London is without question a permanent installation in our top 5 favorite cities in the world. We finally made it across the pond this fall, and we’re sharing our photos from a sunny autumn day in Trafalgar Square in London, in case you’re wondering what it’s like, what the view is, what to there, and more. Bottom line? It’s marvelous.

Why spend a Fall Afternoon in Trafalgar Square London?

There are so many splendid ways to spend an afternoon in London that it can almost be paralyzing – so many choices, so little time. Having just returned home from a visit, we’ve got some ideas on what’s must-see and must-do. For starters, here’s a recommendation from our team of frequent and curious travelers: on a balmy afternoon when you just want some fresh air, people-watching and perhaps a hit of culture and history, head for Trafalgar Square.

It’s full of people day and night, and has the buzzy energy of any central gathering place in a lively cosmopolitan city. There are buskers performing and influencers posing for selfies. Parents and children, lovers and flaneurs, all in their own spaces and yet somehow part of the collective.
