Wellington Arch - Review
The Wellington Arch is an important landmark in London. It is, what is called a “Triumphal arch”, which means that it is a huge archway designed in the ancient Roman style that often spans across the road. The interesting thing about the arch is that the whole thing was relocated in the 1800s from Hyde Park to its present Location today.
The statue on top of the arch was replaced too. The current statue is that of four horses and an angel which makes the arch a stunning sight in the day. Be sure to check this statue out as it is really spectacular and a treat for photography enthusisiasts.
You can visit the small museum inside the arch which holds an interesting display of the royal past of London. The premises are extremely picturesque and the place is not far from the Royal Parks of London so it is definitely worth a visit.

Wellington Arch, London Reviews
At the southeast corner of Hyde Park you can find a series of commemorate monuments, including the Wellington Arch. The Wellington Arch was built between 1825-1827 and was intended to be a triumphal arch to commemorate Wellington's victory over Napoleon. However, it ended up being dedicated to the effort to restore and improve London's Royal Parks. Atop the Wellington Arch is the large bronze sculpture known as the Angel of Peace. You can enter the arch and visit the viewing balcony area (£4.20) where you can take in 360 degree views of Hyde Park, St. James (and Buckingham Palace) as well as Green Park. There is also an exhibition area within Wellington Arch as well. Sharing green space with Wellington Arch are the Royal Artillery Memorial, Machine Gun Corp Memorial, Duke of Wellington Statue, the New Zealand Memorial, the Australia Memorial and Bomber Command Memorial, which is just across the street in Green Park. If you like arch structures, you can also see the historic Marble Arch at the corner of Hyde Park. In the end, we enjoy the monuments in this area of London, including Wellington Arch. It is worth spending a bit of time if you intend to visit the Royal Parks and can be conveniently seen if visiting the Knightsbridge shops and restaurants as well.
A small and probably overlooked attraction. Very interesting and educational. Lovely people staff this place who obviously really love their job. They were very kind to my little bit and made sure he was able to collect all his badges. Very patient. They are a little health and safety conscious on the top teir!
Another monument in London. After staying here and sightseeing for a few days, losing the excitement when I saw any new statues. First day, I would be so excited to take pictures with the monument... but after seeing so many of them, kind o But it is fascinating to see the old (history) and mixed with the new. All the monument are well maintained. You see tourists everywhere in the city. Definitely tourists friendly city. The residents and businesses here are so used to see tourists everyday. They are respectful.
We found the expositions held at first and third floor of the structure surprisingly interesting and informative, while the view from the top of the arch it's just incredible with favourable weather. Staff is exceedingly nice and the prize definitely affordable, thus the 5 stars. Highly recommend!
A good spot for a bit of rest in a busy day. This is one of my favourite spots in all of London
