Marble Arch
  • West End Loop

Marble Arch is a monument made of white Carrara marble and located close to Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park to the west of Oxford Street in London. Built in 1851 in The Mall as the new entrance to Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch was moved to its current location in 1851. The sculptures inlaid into the white marble represent England, Scotland and Ireland. Nowadays, Marble Arch is a nerve centre bringing together both cars and pedestrians in this area which contains so many highlights of the city: Hyde Park, Oxford Street and Park Lane.
