Wellington Arch, London

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 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, and the history of the Arch is documented in an Exhibition on the first floor.

  • Very interesting place . Definitely it has unique views in London. It's not really big, they have a really small staircase to go up and a lift. It's worth visiting
  • A very interesting place indeed. In the spot there are several memorials, not just Wellington's Arch. I felt awe in front of monuments for the fallen of WWI. A very moving experience. Just opposite Hyde Park Corner, easy to access by tube or bus. Buckingham Palace is within walking distance.
