Wellington Arch, also known as Constitution Arch or (originally) as the Green Park Arch, is a Grade I-listed triumphal arch by Decimus Burton that forms a centrepiece of Hyde Park Corner in central London, between corners of Hyde Park and Green Park; it stands on a large traffic island with crossings for pedestrian access. From its construction in 1826 until 1830 the arch stood in a different location nearby; it was moved to its current site in 1882–1883. It originally supported a colossal equestrian statue of the 1st Duke of Wellington by the sculptor Matthew Cotes Wyatt, as a result of which it has acquired the name "the Wellington Arch" in the vernacular. A bronze quadriga (an ancient four-horse chariot) by Adrian Jones has surmounted it since 1912.Make Wellington Arch a part of your London vacation plans using our London trip itinerary planning website.

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.
