Wellington Arch is one of London's lesser known public memorials, but visitors to the attraction can enjoy a tour of it and its neighbours at London's Hyde Park Corner this winter.
Commencing at 14:00 GMT every Sunday during the month of November, guests to the capital can enjoy the Hyde Park Corner and its Memorials guided tour, leaving from the arch, located on Grosvenor Place.
Alongside Marble Arch, its more famous neighbour over on the north side of Hyde Park, Wellington Arch was completed in 1830 to celebrate the country's victories in the Napoleonic Wars in the earlier part of the century.
Some visitors are surprised to find out that the arch is hollow. Memorable views of one of the most historic and beautiful parts of London are available from the viewing platform.
Recently restored to its former glory by a £1.5 million restoration project by English Heritage, the arch is known for once containing one of the UK's smallest police stations up until its closure in 1992.
Visitors to the Arch who hold a LondonPass can enjoy free entry to Wellington Arch, saving £3.30 for adults and £1.70 for children.
