3.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web
Set in the heart of Royal London at Hyde Park Corner, Wellington Arch is a landmark for Londoners and visitors alike and a great addition to a memorable day out in London. The balconies also offer unique views across London and of the Household Cavalry, passing beneath on their way to and from the Changing of the Guard at Horse Guards Parade every morning. It was originally commissioned as a grand outer entrance to Buckingham Palace and moved to its present site in 1882.

  • I love this Ark, she is so pretty. Not need to make a detour to see but if you go there do to go and see!

  • Don't expect a monument. But still worth a few minutes of attention. Even with sightseeing tour by bus

  • Wellington arch stands at the South-eastern end of Hyde Park in Central London. The triumphal arch was opened in 1830. He should recall for the British victories in the Napoleonic wars. The Quadriga, which is Europe's largest bronze sculpture perched on the bow. There was a police station in the arch until 1992. Today, we find a small museum that abundant entrance fee like almost everything else in London. We have looked at extensively the triumphal arch from the outside and we well liked. A truly impressive building. Especially the powerful Quadriga has done to us. The British can build monuments hold really well.

  • It's Peng tbh
  • Very impressive from outside. You have to pay to go inside and upstairs.
  • Triumphantly triumphant triumphal arch. Wrought iron gates are spectacular.
  • It's pretty from the outside, and it's pretty small on the inside, and unlike most London monuments and museums, it's not at all free to enter. Choose what you will but the best stuff is on the outside.
  • The whole Hyde Park thing is a must, with a walk down Horse Guards parade past the Royal Albert Hall and the Barracks to the pomp and splendour of Hyde Park Corner. There is an eerie sense of the grandeur of times when Britain was in its ascendency. I'd visited as a child but was urged to return having read Bill Bryson's "Icons of England", a must for any traveller to that fair and pleasant land.
