The Wellington Arch is a grand neoclassical arch erected in 1826 that commemorates the victory of Wellington over Napolean. Designed by Decimus Burton as a grand entrance to the Buckingham Palace, it was moved to Hyde Park Corner in 1882. The magnificent statue of the Angel of Peace Descending on the Quadriga of War was placed on top of the Arch in 1912, and remains today the largest bronze sculpture in the United Kingdom, spectacularly lit at night. During the 1950s, the arch served as the smallest police station in the city, when it was occupied by ten constables, two sergeants and a cat. From the balconies atop the arch, visitors can enjoy the views over the Houses of Parliament and the Royal Parks.
