The area
Neighbourhood: Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.

    This is run by English Heritage and probably only worth entering if you are a member. It is rather tedious to walk to as it is on the centre of one of the busiest traffic islands in London. There are a number of monuments and sculpture around it including the Duke of Wellington.. The volunteer staff are very personable and there is a lift up to the top balconies. Here you have views along Constitution Hill, Park Lane and Piccadilly. Even in winter with no foliage you cannot see Buckingham Palace. The small sized floors have exhibitions of paintings and war memorabilia. Time your journey for the morning parade of the Horseguards and this is probably the main attraction but you don't have to enter to see them.

    One of capital’s best know gathering places.
    Have visited this corner of Hyde Park several times over the years, both right beside and around the arch, and also closeby at Speakers Corner. We hadn’t realised how MA is evidently regarded as a significant space to gather to celebrate, commemorate, campaign, protest or even just pause during part way along a parade. MA has all the character and ambience needed. We experienced just such an event a fortnight ago.

    Under Restoration
    Marble Arch is an iconic structure at the end of Oxford Street where it meets Edgware Road and Park Lane. It is familiar to the Arc De Triomphe in Paris. I visited in May 2024 and it was behind sheeting so I guess it is under restoration at the moment.

Is this Marble Arch, covered by an add? If I am not mistaken, then it’s a rather disappointing and shocking commercialism.

Marble Arch signs the start of the Oxford shopping street. The arch is not so big and not much appreciated nowadays.

Historically important and beautiful arch designed by John Nash that once was the main entrance to Buckingham Palace and was relocated to its current location in 1851. It now sits in the middle of a busy traffic circle and you can’t miss it if you are riding on a double decker bus anywhere in this part of town. I wouldn’t make a special effort to see it unless you are nearby. Average rating only because London is filled with so many other more impressive and important sites.

It’s an arch…in a dirty street. Nothing more to add really other than to say I’ve now seen it and carried on walking to Hyde park.

We were having an afternoon of wandering around London and decided to go on a tube to Marble Arch as we had not seen this. You can literally get off the tube and you can see it and take your photos. Hyde Park is next to it. Oxford Street is about 20 mins walk away so we just wandered to there for a look around.
