You can also sample South East Asian vegetarian cuisine, enjoy children's activities, buy colourful trinkets, don a sari and see Lord Ganesh adorned with marigold garlands at this celebration of the victory of light over darkness.

 

About Trafalgar Square

Lord Nelson, Britain's greatest military hero, and the mighty lions that surround him, pay testament to the position of Trafalgar Square at the heart of the capital, the heart of the nation, and, at one time, the heart of an empire that controlled three fifths of the world.
