  • Even though it can get very loud, marble arch is a great place to have group meets and chill woth friends, sit by the fountains where it's quiet. Perfect for a small picnic.
  • Marble Arch is a monument designed by John Nash as the triumphal gateway to Buckingham Palace. But King William IV was not a huge lover of Buckingham Palace and the Palace itself remained unoccupied during his reign. Later during Queen Victoria’s accession Buckingham Palace became a hub of royal activity and required that the Palace be extended. The Arch was moved out of the way and now act as a ceremonial entrance to Hyde Park. This is the smallest Police station in London; there are three small rooms in the top of Marble Arch which were occasionally used as a police station and lookout.
  • A kinda relaxing stop with a "finally a bench!" in the middle of London. Actually i didn't care much about the Marble Arch since i was so tired, but it is a remarkable yet unfinished heritage from the old times set in the always changing London. A pidgeon preferred.
  • A massive meeting point. Visible from a large distance. There's a stray table tennis table here. The horse statue is pretty interesting to look at.
  • Great place to have a rest just at the end and off Oxford Street. Love the sculptures in each of the grass areas near the water fountains.

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.
