  • This statue of the Duke of Wellington on horseback stands in Hyde Park Corner opposite Aspley House, which was Wellington's London House. Worth a stop for photographs if in the area.  more »
  • Close to Hyde Park Corner, stands the statue of the Duke of Wellington victorious over Napoleon. Not particularly impressive and slightly enhanced but still to be seen.

  • A great statue to a military hero.
  • A treat to visit and a great tribute to our fallen. Absolutley amazing.
  • Great place
  • Very impressive statue.
  • This is marked incorrectly on Google Maps and is actually called the "Equestrian statue of the Duke of Wellington" The bronze statue stands on a plinth of pink Peterhead Granite from Stirlinghill Quarry, near Boddam, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The figures at the corners of the pedestal are those of representative British soldiers, a Grenadier, a Scottish Highlander, an Irish Dragoon and a Welsh Fusilier. This is a magnificent statue sitting opposite to Apsley House, which once was Wellington's London home. Magnificent!!

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
