TOUR OF THE MONTH
A Grassy Event
Grass for paving slabs - the square gets a makeover.
Location: Trafalgar Square, 51.508
Description: Never before has Trafalgar Square looked anything like this. Lush green turf has replaced the broad paving slabs while picnicking couples and deckchairs have taken the place of tourists and office workers.
For two days (today being the last), the square has been covered in 2,000 sq ft of turf, transforming it into what is being described as London's village green.
And why...well it's all part of tourist body Visit London's campaign to promote the capital's villages, whether they be in urban Marylebone or suburban Wimbledon, Primrose Hill or Blackheath.
Inspired - hope you had a chance to get a grass stain!
