A substantial memorial to the Duke but in a rather incongruous position in the middle of a large traffic roundabout so through the arch is not really coming from or going to anywhere without the traffic in the way. Still, impressive.

This is an excellent monument to this great leader. Near Hyde Park Corner this is impressive. Need to access via the subway as now in the middle of a roundabout

We've met Weelington in many places in Europe. I saw his room in the village of Waterloo in Belgium, I could not visit this monument dedicated to the great historical character. For his fans is a must. We've met Wellington in many places in Europe....More

Worth buying a ticket for both Apsley House and the Wellington Arch. The latter does provide some information on the Battle of Waterloo, not least that there were tens of thousands of soldiers involved with the battle, not just Wellington and Napoleon. Good to see...More

I had always admired the Arch whilst passing by but never realised there was more to it. The story & timeline of the Battle of Waterloo is brought to life in a remarkable way.

Probably the best little monument I've seen. Inside, they do an awesome job of giving you the history of the Arch and the Battle of Waterloo. From the top, you can get a great view of the Household Cavalry coming back from the Changing of...More

They do pass under the Arch every day. As long as you are on the balcony by 10:30, you should be able to watch them approach from Hyde Park. This was the last thing we did before leaving London, and it was a wonderful send... More
