"Marble Arch" Marble Arch Tip by Gypsystravels
Marble Arch, London: 43 reviews and 63 photos
Marble Arch (named so because it is made of Carrara Marble) is located here at a corner entering Hyde Park. John Nash designed and built the arch in 1828 as the main entrance to Buckingham Palace. It was later moved to its present location because it became too narrow for the grandest of coaches to pass through it.
The arch consists of three archways with columns in between and is decorated with reliefs of what looks like Roman images. It is said that only the members of the Royal Family and one of the royal artillery regiments are allowed to pass under it, but I had no problem walking right throw the center archway.
