Getting inside the arch provides the visitor with a nice view of the area, plus a better understanding of what happened leading up to the Battle of Waterloo and during it. I found the display of the troop movements during the battle to be very...More

Located between Buckingham Palace and Kensington Gardens, this is a fun quick stop for photos. We didn't realize you can actually climb to the top until we got there. We just sat down and relaxed for a few minutes to take in the arch and...More

Living in England for 11 years and I never took the decision to visit this place, I'm glad I did. Lots of history, beautiful views from the top of the arch that used to be the gates of the old city Of London if you...More

We hadn't previously realised that the Arch was open to the public. Visited last week and must have spent an hour and half looking over the excellent exhibition/museum. Also had an excellent view of the Horse Guards on their way to Buck Palace at 10.50....More

They do pass under the Arch every day. As long as you are on the balcony by 10:30, you should be able to watch them approach from Hyde Park. This was the last thing we did before leaving London, and it was a wonderful send... More
