Trafalgar Square, a Stone’s Throw From St. Martin-In-The-Fields

Trafalgar Square

I meant to show you more pictures of Covent Garden, but before we got there on Day 5 of our trip to London in July, 2014, we went for an early morning walk from our hotel at The Trafalgar Hilton, situated right there in Trafalgar Square – so convenient!  First we went across the road to Trafalgar Square to see the Blue Hen and the fountains – why not wake up to a hen in Central London?  There’s nothing like it!

The National Gallery is a very impressive art museum, and it’s located bang in the middle of Trafalgar Square.

Look at this, you get Nelson’s Column, the lions, Big Ben and London Buses all in view!  Oh, how I love London!

What a fabulous place to take a walk, but then again – it’s nice to be walking anywhere in London.

Right there at Trafalgar Square is a beautiful church – St. Martin In The Fields.  I’m not sure how it got this name as I don’t see any fields around – but I’m sure there’s a reason to the name.  However, it is a beautiful church.

So, now…..we have made it across the Square to this beautiful church – St. Martin In The Fields.

This is not the main part of it, rather the pictures above show you what it looks like – I am including the one below because it is unusual to have such a structure – I do believe it’s the Crypt – and think it houses a cafe.  Since it’s surrounded by such gorgeous architecture, I had to throw in this picture too.

I went inside this beautiful church.  How I love to go into churches!

I saw quite a bit of the service, and joined in singing some of the hymns.  It reminded me of my childhood when we used to sing hymns at my school – as part of our assemblies – most mornings in northern England.

Anyway, I still have more pictures from Day 5, and guess what?  The next day is the last day of London before we headed up north to where my family lives.  Still, I have many more pictures to share.  Until then.
