The huge triumphal Marble Arch designed by John Nash in 1827 was originally situated in front of Buckingham Palace, but moved to its present location on Hyde Park in 1851 when the palace was expanded. The design has been inspired by the Arch of Constantine in Rome, with the north reliefs showing three female figures representing England, Ireland and Scotland. To the south, the main reliefs show a warrior with Justice, Peace and Plenty, and the spandrels have friezes of winged Victories with wreaths. There are three small rooms inside.
