The basics

Wellington Arch stands in the shadow of some of London’s most important attractions, including Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park. Many travelers cruise by the arch on hop-on hop-off buses, while others see the arch while sightseeing or taking part in walking tours.

Few travelers are aware, however, that they can enter the arch, browsing exhibitions inside and taking in views of Hyde Park, Green Park, and the gardens at Buckingham Palace from the balcony at the top. Some London sightseeing passes include free entry to the arch.

When to get there

Visitors can only enter Wellington Arch during the day, though it’s worth coming back at night to see it lit up. Views from the observation gallery are best in the winter months, when there are fewer leaves to obstruct views.
