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.

"I would absolutely recommend buying the London Pass if you have 3 or more days to spend exploring London. Buy it ahead of time, online and research what is available and decide what attractions you might be interested in. A top 10 sort of thing, and then any others that might be of interest. It gives you the freedom to visit many popular sites without the hassle of standing in long lines for tickets. I also liked that I wasn't spending all kinds of money every day on attractions and money did not enter into my decisions on what I wanted to do since my admissions where already paid for. I very much enjoyed my visit in London and I think having the London Pass allowed me to see more than I would have, had I not had it. Thank you!!"
