Wellington Arch is a Grade I-listed triumphal arch by Decimus Burton that forms a centrepiece of Hyde Park Corner in central London, between the corners of Hyde Park and Green Park. It was constructed from 1826 to 1830 and has quite a history, which you can easily read up on in our Google dominated world. This arch originally supported a large equestrian statue of the 1st Duke of Wellington but this was changed in 1912 to a bronze statue of a quadriga, (an ancient four-horse chariot). Certainly worth stopping at to take a photo.

Came here as part of our English Heritage pass and a fantastic setting to honour the Duke of Wellington. Very close to his mansion on Hyde Park Corner roundabout. A great setting. Spoke to a lovely tour guide called Clive who was full of information on the local area. Very good overview of Waterloo and nice small exhibition. Amazing how much they fit into the space provided. Definitely recommend if in the area

English Heritage cares for two prominent triumphal arches in London - Marble Arch and Wellington Arch, which is by far the more interesting, not least because you can access the balconies near the top - providing great views -, there are several floors of exhibitions, and there is a great shop - far better than that in Apsley House across the road. In addition, Wellington was for many years a unique police station. If you visit, combine with Apsley House and with the various different monuments around, on the Hyde Park island and beyond - particularly Achilles, the monument to the 1st Duke of Wellington, in Hyde Park. And have a look at the Queen Elizabeth Gate, very controversial when jbstalled in 1993 for the Queen Mither's 90thburthday.

One of the Most Impressive Memorials in Green Park In September, we visited Green and Hyde Parks, and spent a good amount of time, where the two join, not far from Buckingham Palace. Of the many, very impressive memorials, statues and gates in Green Park, the Wellington Arch is the most significant, in my opinion - a triumphal arch, in the historic, architectural sense, it is grand in its scale, and for the statue atop the arch. That statue, the Angel of Peace in a 4-horse chariot of war, is the largest bronze sculpture in Europe, and is amazing. In an area with many memorials to see, this one deserves plenty of time, and I spent almost an hour, just admiring it in the Autumn light.
