Marble Arch

Marble Arch, at the northern end of Park Lane - the gateway to Buckingham Palace that the royals just didn't want.

Marble Arch is a white Carrara marble monument near Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park, at the western end of Oxford Street.

The arch was designed by John Nash in 1828, based on the triumphal arch of Constantine in Rome. It was originally erected on The Mall as a gateway to the new Buckingham Palace (rebuilt by Nash from the former Buckingham House). A popular story says that the arch was moved because it was too narrow for the Queen's state coach to pass through, but, in fact, the gold state coach passed under it during Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953. Whatever the reason, it was moved in 1851 to its present location.

Like the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, it was originally intended to carry a programme of sculpture celebrating British victories during the Napoleonic Wars. An architectural model, made in around 1826 and now in the Victoria and Albert Museum, shows it with a continuous relief of the Battle of Waterloo on one side and scenes of naval engagements on the other.


The Arch stands close to the site of the Tyburn gallows (sometimes called Tyburn Tree), a place of public execution from 1388 until 1793.

There are three small rooms inside which were used as a police station until 1950.

The nearest London Underground station is Marble Arch, on the Central Line. It was opened on 30 July 1900 by the Central London Railway (CLR).

Like all the original stations on the CLR, Marble Arch was served by lifts to the platforms but the station was reconstructed in the early 1930s to accommodate escalators. This saw the closure of the original station building, designed by the architect Harry Bell Measures, that was situated on the corner of Quebec Street and Oxford Street. The original surface building was later demolished.
