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.

Consequences of Play Exhibition
This new exhibition, The Consequences of Play by artist Daniel Crews-Chubb includes a new series of epic paintings inspired by our iconic Wellington Arch, Apsley House and Peter Paul Rubens’ painting the Consequences of War.
The exhibition will explore Crews-Chubb's reinterpretation of Rubens’ original painting, which allegorically depicted Europe in the aftermath of the Thirty Years War (1618-1648).
The exhibition is in partnership with the Vigo Gallery and will be on display until 12 March 2022 and is included in standard admission.Book your visit
