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.
- The Wellington arch houses a permanent exhibition which is included in the ticket price.
- Photography has some restrictions, kindly check.
- There is a new exhibition instated in the place recently. It is called the quadriga Gallery and is worth the visit.
- Remember that there are no public toilets at the Wellington Arch. The closest facilities are at Apsley House and Hyde Park.

A very worthwhile experience whether you’re local or foreign. Accessing the interior only involves a small outlay, and you get to explore several floors worth of exhibition space, most of it historical covering certain periods, and the first floor up dealing with the evolution of the monument itself. There are some fascinating images on this level. You’re also entitled to go right to the top, below the base of the statues which surmount the structure. The arch itself isn’t particularly high but it’s pleasant all the same viewing the area around Green Park and down Constitution Hill. Do note that from up here you will not be able to fully see all the horses on top of the arch.
Visited the arch using our London passes. There's a small gift shop and museum on the inside, as well as an outdoor terrace at the top. Show up around noon and you'll have a front row view of the daily match of the glittering household cavalry as the pass under the arch on horseback on their way to the stables in hyde park. Definitely would have skipped the site I'd wed had to pay out of pocket, but it was really fun, a hidden gem. The staff, who i suppose mainly are there to man the gift shop, were shockingly knowledgeable and fun. Be sure to also visit wellingtons town house, which is just across the street!
Fascinating history with some really interesting information. Amazing views from the top.
Amazing statue. Wellington Arch, also known as Constitution Arch or the Green Park Arch, is a triumphal arch forming a centrepiece of Hyde Park Corner in central London between corners of Hyde Park and Green Park — it sits on a large traffic island having crossings for cyclists and pedestrian access.
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.
