About

Why is the National Gallery located on Trafalgar Square? Why is Trafalgar Square so special and important? Why does Nelson perch on top of a 52-metre-high column? And what’s all this got to do with 'The Fighting Temeraire' by the Victorian painter, Turner?  

Join Christina Bradstreet to find out the answers to these questions and more.
