The statue of Horatio Nelson, killed at his greatest victory at Trafalgar in 1805, is 18 feet tall. If Hitler had conquered Britain, he planned to have the column moved to Berlin.

Join the kids in climbing up the big lions. Just don't fall and embarrass yourself.

Stand near the main entrance of the National Gallery to view this monument in late afternoon and you will be amazed.

If you want a picture of yourself sitting at the base of the column or standing next to the lions, make sure you can climb or have someone who can lift you up.

The four iron depictions of his greatest battles at the base of the column are actually made of the cannons of the ships defeated at Waterloo.

Fitting tribute to a National hero. Nelson died at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 where the French and Spanish fleets were destroyed. Children love climbing over the lions at the base.
