Description

Marble Arch

The Marble Arch is a white Carrara marble monument that now stands on a large traffic island at the junction of Oxford Street, Park Lane and Edgware Road, almost directly opposite Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park. The arch was designed in 1825 by John Nash as ceremonial entrance to the courtyard of the new Buckingham Palace. Until 1851 it stood in front of Buckingham Palace. Historically, only members of the royal family and the King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery, have been allowed to pass through the arch in ceremonial procession.
