Imperial monument in the heart of London. Great place to chill out on a sunny day and take in all the history this place represents.

The view of this from afar is magnificent and you can take some great photographs from many differing angles showing so many aspects under all the lighting conditions The top can be reached as it is open to the public

Visited the Wellington Arch on a windy February day. I'd intended to combine it with a visit to Apsley House just across the road but it is closed until April for renovation. There are around 100 steps to the top or a lift. There are small exhibitions on each floor, interesting facts about the history of the arch and why... More

Seek this venue out. It was by pure chance I found out you could go round it. There are many reasons to visit. Firstly, for the great views. I was there to witness the mounted cavalry escorted by Police horses come up Constitution Hill and trot through the arch. Secondly, if history is your thing then there is a great... More

This is a gloriously grand monument to that is sorely under visited due to its location: what must surely be the UK's most striking roundabout! Maybe that's a blessing though, as if you do choose to visit you will more than likely have it all to yourself.

Went in on a whim as I had no idea you could go inside. Its a tiny museum run by English Heritage - luckily I am a member so it was free otherwise its £5.40. There are 2 and half floors of exhibits and then you can go outside and view London from the top which is stunning. There are... More

This arch is located near Hyde Park and Green Park so you can tick this item easily off your list of things to see when in London. It is also free which is great, like many of the attractions in this area! Planned in 1825 to commemorate Britain's victory in the Napoleonic Wars, this arch is not only rich in... More

We climbed the stairs but had a disappointing view - really wasn't the lookout I thought it could be we just saw roads and lots of tree tops and could just work out the top of the London eye and the shard in the distance but really not a view you could write home about. Maybe the weather let us... More

This is a wonderful Arch that if one looks up close one will see the great designs that have been made in such detail One can even go inside and up to the top of the Arch which gives a great view - an EH membership will give entry here should you have this

We passed through quickly when we were heading to Hyde Park. It is a nice arch and very easy to see and get to. It is not an essential sight but if you are entering the park from the Hyde Park Corner Tube entrance than it is easy to see.
