Set in the heart of Royal London at Hyde Park Corner. The Wellington Arch is a landmark which was originally commissioned by George IV as a grand outer entrance to Buckingham Palace. It was completed in 1830 by architect Decimus Burton, but was moved in 1882 to it's current location.
The balconies just below the spectacular bronze sculpture offers a glorious view over London's Royal Parks and the Houses of Parliament. The statue is the largest bronze sculpture in Europe, and depicts the angel of peace descending on the chariot of war.
