  • Visitor Information

Exhibition at Wellington Arch by English Heritage showing how London may have looked if various planning proposals to destroy vast areas of Soho, Covent Garden and Piccadilly had gone ahead. Includes a 1950s conceptual scheme for a giant conservatory supporting tower blocks over Soho and proposals a decade later to replan Whitehall by demolishing virtually all the Edwardian and Victorian buildings around Parliament Square. Using the latest digital technology, the exhibition presents the London that might have been and considers how the latest developments in digital mapping can be used in the future.

 

About Wellington Arch

A landmark triumphal arch set opposite the Duke of Wellington's residence at Apsley House, Wellington Arch was built in 1830 to commemorate the victories won by Britain in the Napoleonic wars. Though the arch remains, dominating Hyde Park Corner, sadly the unfeasibly huge equestrian figure of the 'Iron Duke' was removed from the top of the arch in 1882. More about Wellington Arch
