"Wellington Arch" Wellington Arch Tip by kenyneo

Wellington Arch, London: 16 reviews and 37 photos

  The Wellington Arc from a double decker
by kenyneo

A little history of the Arch

Built in 1828 as a memorial to the Duke of Wellington, the arch has had a troubled history which entailed serving as a police station and being moved to its present location in Hyde Park Corner! It has now been handed back to the public after being revamped and offers visitors fine views across Green Park and St James's Park towards Big Ben and the South Bank

My journey

Saw the arch in a double decker . My first double decker tirp. Thats bus number 148 . It will also take you pass Marble Arch as well along Bayswater Street to my 1st drop off point Westminster !

Dint take any pic of Marbel arch ..coz I was a little supirsed because it was not as huge as I have thought in a flicker of a moment ..deciding whether to take a pic ..the bus whizzied off ....but I managed to take the Wellington Arch ....hehe

Warning. The upper level of the double decker is quite hot and it can be little dizzy when the bus pass thru some uneven road .. :-)
