Wellington Arch, London
(3.9/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • The London pass to believe it's the most visited monument in London, don't fear nothing should not be a queue. Visit broken down into 2 parts: the 1st floor with a little history lesson then the terrace where you will discover the 200 m in the area. Nothing extra. TODO so you have a little time (30 min) and you admission is paid in a package.

  • You can ride on the terrace of this arch for 4.70 pounds or free with the London pass, which I did. You take an elevator, it leads to a mini Museum with panels entirely and exclusively written in English, then you have access to a terrace, where you have a view that is far from memorable. Take a photo of down if you go there, and it will be more than enough!

  • A quick visit is all you need. There is a neat memorial to the left of it with white crosses on the top. Great to see!
  • The entry is included in the London Pass so we went atop of the arch. You getca nice view from up there but nothing extraordinary.
  • Nice place to sit down and kill some time. The sun can be a bit harsh if it's out.
  • Beautiful and stunning. A must see when in London.
  • Just like in every big city, got to have an arch.
