The Wellington Arch

with No Comments

This triumphal arch is an iconic landmark in London, commissioned by King George IV to commemorate Britain’s victory on the Napoleonic Wars, it was built between 1826 and 1830 and is currently located on a traffic island between Hyde Park and Green Park, behind the Buckingham Palace gardens.

Until 1882 when the arch was moved from its original location it held a statue of the 1st Duke of Wellington, which was replaced in 1912 by The Quadriga.
