Wellington Arch

Things to see and do

Unrivalled Views

Peek into the Queen's back gardens from the balconies of Wellington Arch. Look out over London's Royal Parks to the Houses of Parliament.

If you get your timings right, you can watch the Household Cavalry passing through the arch on their way to and from the Changing of the Guard. Stopping the traffic on their way as they ride on horseback beneath you - it is an unforgettable sight.

Explore our Exhibitions

Explore our current exhibition, Vertical Planes, by artist Jordy Kerwick in partnership with the Vigo Gallery. Vertical Planes is a playful reaction to history - or alternate histories - of Wellington Arch and some of the characters immortalised by it. The exhibition runs until 29 May 2022.
Later in the year Wellington Arch will host exhibitions by Ibrahim El-Salahi and Matthew Burrows.
