    Great buildings, not least Westminster Abbey and Parliament; but poor urban design makes it not a great place to stop: heavy traffic; narrow pavements; hard to access central green area; few amenities

    Formerly a warren of shops, slum dwellings and alleyways, and half a millennia before that an island. Cleared in the 19th century and on its way to what we know today.

    Look out for a shifty looking welsh guy, he often cheats in foursquare here or in the treasury, but no one would let him into the treasury, he smells of leaks.

    Two traffic milestones occurred in this square. In 1868 the world’s first traffic lights were installed here (which later blew up) and in 1926, it became Britain’s first official roundabout.

    Now this place looks more like construction site, then nice lawn square it used to be. Bloody scamp protesters.
