Wonderful Wellington Arch

By Janeslondon
Whenever I am at Hyde Park Corner I like to take a detour into the center of the roundabout to see the marvelous memorials  including this magnificent one to The Duke of Wellington.
Wonderful Wellington Arch
It was moved to its current position within the middle of  roundabout in the 1880s – wow – that must've been some huge wheelbarrow!
There is a museum within the 5-storey arch that used to be a tiny police station. Next time you are there be sure to pop in and check it out.
