“The arch is beautiful, but the immediate surrounding park is gross”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

There is bird poop all over the place, the field alongside it is filthy and there is a pool with three fountains in it at the other end of the park and the water there is filthy and filled with litter. Its pretty at night because the fountains are lit up in different colors but its nasty when the sun is shining. I know there isn't much you can do about the pigeon poop..but everything else could be someone what monitored or controlled.

“Just a big piece of rock”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Nothing much to see. Was told there are nice fish and chips around this area, so stopped by on the way for lunch.

“Pretty but dirty”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Loads of foot traffic but the area surrounding the arch itself isn't kept very clean...Hyde Park beside it however was a delightful find for me!

“Marble Arch at the northeast corner of Hyde Park”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

At the northeast corner of Hyde Park you can find the old Marble Arch, an early 19th century triumphal structure designed by John Nash as a state entrance for the Royal family when entering Buckingham Palace.

The Marble Arch was relocated in 1851 and today it rests near the Marble Arch Tube Station on Oxford Street at the edge of Hyde Park. It is one of many interesting things to see in this area of London and is worth having a quick look.

The similar Wellington Arch can be found on the southeast corner of Hyde Park if you are interested in these type structures.
