Marble Arch - Review
The Marble arch is an imposing triumphal arch which joins Park Lane, Edgeware Road and the famous Oxford Street. Unlike the Wellington arch tourists have free access to this place.
It is a beautiful pass-by spot but do take some time out to admire the beautiful architecture. The carvings on the arch are really beautiful and the detailing is definitely worth a regard.
The Marble Arch gives its name to the area that surrounds it making it a noteworthy landmark in London.

Marble Arch, London Reviews
Can be a bit grimy, but a good place to sit down and get away from the madness of the high street. Also a quick shot into Hyde Park and down to Hyde Park Corner. Take the walk, much quicker than the tube and much more enjoyable.
A busy location where you can sit and relax or join in the giant board games and table tennis. It's easy to get to with lots of pedestrian crossings and an entrance to the London Underground. It's next to Hyde Park and some of the famous London retail streets. A short walk from Mayfair if you want to explore there too.
This is an iconic monument right in the heart of London. If you are trying to get here it's at the end of the famous shopping street called Oxford Street and at the equally famous Hyde park. By Underground it's outside Marble Arch Underground train station on the Central Line. By road it's at the end of Edgware Road, Oxford Street and Hyde Park corner. What does it look like? It reminds me of a smaller version of the French famous Arch Historically it was once at the entrance to Buckingham Palace but was moved to its present location. Also it's situated at the sight of lots of Hangings that were public spectacles back then.
Brightly lit after dark. Beautiful arch at entrance gate to speakers corner. At exit of marble Arch station.
At the northeast corner of Hyde Park you can find the old Marble Arch, an early 19th century triumphal structure designed by John Nash as a state entrance for the Royal family when entering Buckingham Palace. The Marble Arch was relocated in 1851 and today it rests near the Marble Arch Tube Station on Oxford Street at the edge of Hyde Park. It is one of many interesting things to see in this area of London and is worth having a quick look. The similar Wellington Arch can be found on the southeast corner of Hyde Park if you are interested in these type structures.
