Trafalgar Square provides a bizarre mix of entertainment. Its iconic status as a London landmark, from the grand fountain to Nelson's Column at its centre, offers a backdrop for festivals, film-making and public demonstrations. London listings will usually publish some performances taking place in Trafalgar Square during the month, and you could even stumble across a rally going on. Every year Trafalgar Square is used as the base for a number of events, most notably the St Patrick's Day Parade and Chinese New Year. Art is also a major feature of the square. The Fourth Plinth features specially commissioned artworks, while the square is home to both the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery. For a great view of Trafalgar Square meanwhile, you can sip cocktails in the rooftop bar in The Trafalgar hotel, Vista, where you can also catch sight of the London Eye and Big Ben.
