The next commission of public art for Trafalgar Square’s fourth plinth will be unveiled soon, so there are just a few days left to see the current occupant, a giant ice cream.
About the Trafalgar SquareTrafalgar Square is a large open plaza in central London which is often used for public events, and has a number of statues and the famous Nelson's Column.
At the bottom of Nelson's column are four bronze cast lions that appear to be on guard.
One of the four plinths in the square is used for a regularly changing work of contemporary art, to contrast with the military statues on the other three.
On the north side of the square, under the steps, there is a cafe and toilet.
The square used to be famous for its pigeons, but feeding them was banned and now the population has largely gone away.
IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
