Set in the heart of royal London, Wellington Arch was built as an original entrance to Buckingham Palace, later becoming 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 just below the great Quadriga sculpture.

Time your visit to view the Household Cavalry riding under the arch to and from the Changing of the Guard at Horse Guards Parade.

Visit an exhibition on the first floor to discover the surprising story of how the arch’s appearance and siting have changed since it was first erected in 1825-27. Visit the third and fourth floors to learn more about the day when Wellington met and defeated Napoleon in an multi-sensory exhibition which transports you to the battle field. If time allows cross the road and visit the first Duke of Wellington’s home, Apsley House.
