About

Set in the heart of royal London at Hyde Park Corner, Wellington Arch was built in 1825-7 as part of a campaign to improve the royal parks. Intended as a victory arch proclaiming Wellington's defeat of Napoleon, it is crowned by the largest bronze sculpture in Europe, depicting the Angel of Peace descending on the ‘Quadriga’ – or four-horsed chariot – of War. Today it is a landmark for both Londoners and visitors and a great addition to a memorable day out in London. Visitors can enjoy the glorious panoramas over London's Royal Parks and the Houses of Parliament from the balconies below the spectacular bronze sculpture. The view of the Household Cavalry on their way to and from the Changing of the Guard is a joy to behold.
