Set in the heart of royal London, Wellington Arch was built as an original entrance to Buckingham Palace.

Now, this triumphal arch celebrates Britain’s triumph over Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. The hollow arch contains three floors of exhibitions on the Napoleonic Wars and the history of the arch itself, as well as offering extensive views across the surrounding royal area from its balconies.

Wellington Arch highlights:

Battle of Waterloo – learn more about the Battle of Waterloo, where the Duke of Wellington guided his army to victory over Napoleon’s forces, ending the Napoleonic Wars. You’ll even find a pair of the Duke of Wellington’s wellington boots and the sword he carried at the Battle of Waterloo.

Views of London – drink in the views from the balconies, taking in the many sights of the surrounding area of London, including the Queen’s back garden, the Royal Parks and the Houses of Parliament.

Large bronze sculpture – admire the large bronze sculpture that sits imposingly atop the arch, depicting the Angel of Peace, on the four-horse chariot of war. The statue atop the arch—The Quadriga—is the largest bronze statue in Europe.
