English term or phrase: St. Martin's
Twenty minutes later the Bakerloo Line delivered them into the icy cold of Trafalgar Square. In the distance, Big Ben. In the square, Nelson. Havelock. Napier. George IV. And then the National Gallery, back there near St. Martin's. All the statues facing the clock.

Would like to know what the St. Martin's refers to? A cathedral name, street name, or institution name? Thanks.
