|32 Calton Hill, Edinburgh New Town EH7 5AA|
|Nelson Monument Website|
The Nelson Monument was built in memory of Admiral Lord Nelson, who died at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Weather permitting, the Trafalgar flag signal 'England expects that every man will do his duty' is still flown on Trafalgar Day (21 October).
It is situated on top of Calton Hill, and provides a dramatic termination to the view along Princes Street from the west.
The monument is 32 metres (105 ft) high, and has 143 steps leading to a public viewing gallery. The castellated design reflects the castellated prison buildings which stood on the south side of Calton Hill in the early 19th century.
