English Heritage: Wellington Arch

Wellington Arch at night Pinterest


Set in the heart of royal London, Wellington Arch was built as a victory arch proclaiming Wellington's defeat of Napoleon.

Crowned by the largest bronze sculpture in Europe, it depicts the Angel of Peace descending on the 'Quadriga' - or four-horsed chariot - of War.

Visit this spectacular landmark and feast on the glorious panoramas over London from its balconies. Discover the Royal Parks, and watch the Household Cavalry on their way to the Changing of the Guard.

For 2015, the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, visit the temporary exhibition inside the arch, with an animated battle table, and learn all about the battle.
