This magnificent white monument was built by John Nash in 1828. The design of the monument was based on the triumphal Arch of Constantine in Rome.
It originally stood at the entrance to Buckingham Palace, however when the palace was extended in 1851 the monument was moved to its current location near Speakers Corner in Hyde Park. This move is believed to be because the arch wasn’t wide enough for the royal coach to pass through it.
This site has huge ties to English history as it used to be the site of the Tyburn gallows, where more than 50,000 criminals where hanged in the public eye from 1388 to 1793.
This spectacular monument in the heart of London is easily accessible by public transport. For a hotel near Marble Arch London, Clayton Crown Hotel is just a 25 minute drive away.
