    The centre of elaborated political and ceremonial events but nowadays more of a challenge to navigate traffic and tourist

    Architecture from the Elizabeth Tower, Palace of Westminster, Portcullis House, and more besides. A great place to people watch. Often busy with tourists.

    Considering that you're sat in the middle of the busiest roundabout, it's actually a lovely place for a picnic in a sunny day

    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

    A spectacular public square which is still a roundabout - thanks to Boris Johnson.

    Believe it or not, free wifi. Find a shady tree and get stuff done.

    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.

    The peace campaigners are peaceful, but the tourists can be difficult to navigate!

    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.

    Conor Osborne · March 18, 2011

    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.
