Trafalgar Bi-Centenary 2005 Admiral Lord Nelson 1758-1805 Whilst visiting Birmingham in August 1802, Vice Admiral Viscount Nelson stayed at the Styles' (later the Royal) Hotel, which stood on the site opposite. Such was the impression that Nelson made during his stay, that after his death at the Battle of Trafalgar, Birmingham was the first place in the kingdom to erect a statue in his memory. This foremost statue still stands in the Bull Ring today.
