The Wellington Arch is one of the most viewed London landmarks thanks to its proximity to the busy traffic interchange at Hyde Park Corner. If you’ve only ever seen this London arch by car, then now is the time to get up close and find out the real history of this historic monument.
Both Wellington Arch and Marble Arch were planned in 1825 by George IV to commemorate Britain’s victories in the Napoleonic Wars with Wellington Arch originally conceived as the gateway to Buckingham Palace.
From viewing platforms beneath this London arch’s magnificent sculpture (“Peace Descending On The Chariot Of War”) London visitors can perch high above the traffic below and see exceptional views of the surrounding parks (Hyde Park, Green Park and Buckingham Palace Gardens) and the London skyline.
The Wellington Arch is a great tourist site to watch the mounted Horse Guards, which pass between its majestic columns every day while exhibitions inside tell of this London arch’s fascinating history and introduce the statues and memorials of London.
The Arch houses an exhibition with tells the story of this famous Landmark. It is also home to The Quadriga Gallery, which hosts fast changing exhibitions throughout the year.

Well worth the money!
We bought a six-day pass, including an Underground pass, and used it every day we were in London. In fact, I calculated that we would have spent more on getting into places and using the Tube, than the pass cost. The pass book, listing where it could be used, was invaluable and pointed us to places, like Benjamin Franklin's home, we wouldn't have visited otherwise. I'll get a London pass again, next time I visit!
