Not in the same class as the Paris arc de tri, But it is a place worth a visit and a few pics from different angles. On the north eastern edge of Hyde park. Good before a walk through the park.

Very popular among tourists, this area houses cheap and expensive, and large and larger shops. It connects to Oxford Street and is a pleasant yet busy walk. Lots of places to eat along the walk.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
