  • Visitor Information

Marble ArchDesigned by John Nash in 1828, Marble Arch was intended to be the chief entrance to Buckingham Palace. However, when the Palace was extended, the Arch was relocated to its current position as an entrance to Hyde Park. Built of white Carrara marble, the design was taken from the triumphal arch of Constantine in Rome. The upper part of the Arch has been used as a place for police surveillance. During a riot in 1855 the crowd was brought to order by a body of police, who emerged from the arch taking the demonstrators by surprise. People gather at the Arch these days at what is known as Speakers' Corner, where speakers and hecklers assemble to debate a variety of topics. By tradition, only senior members of the royal family, the King's Troop and the Royal Horse Artillery are allowed to ride or drive through the landmark. The Arch was given a £2.1million revamp in 2009 that saw three surrounding fountains restored and a 27ft statue of a horse placed on the opposite lawn.
