There are a number of statues of 'The Iron Duke', who achieved everlasting fame as the Allied commander at the 1815 Battle of Waterloo which finally extinguished the ambitions of Napoleon Bonaparte. One twerp (14 April 2014) states in his review that this one, facing Apsley House over the road at the southeast corner of Hyde Park, is both here... More

It is located just below the South East corner of Hyde Park. You will pass it with the bus city tour.

The equestrian statue of the Duke of Wellington is an outdoor sculpture of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, a British soldier and statesman. This statue dates back to 1844 and (I think) is said to be cast in the metal of captured French guns. London’s city centre has a diverse range of sculptures - ranging from traditional to contemporary,... More

I've seen many statues of the Duke of Wellington, and his horse Coppenhagen, so consider myself something of an expert. This statue I have to say is one of the best. I did not get to have a proper look as my bus was travelling quite quickly at the time, but I can confirm that it is a excellent likeness... More

The Duke of Wellington statue is situated outside the Royal Exchange, and is the only London statue to be commissioned during a subject’s lifetime. It’s said to be made of metal from French cannons captured in battle. If you’re in the area and doing a walking session around London, it’s a good place to add to your trip, but otherwise... More

This statue definitely adds up to the grounds it's on with the arch behind it; and all the memorials around it! The four soldier in four corners are a nice touch. Visit Buckingham Palace and walk over to Hyde Park and make sure to stop by on the grounds here to examine this statue and the memorials around it.

Great monument with the soldiers at the four corners equally as important as the statue of Wellington. Great to understand that, with his arch behind him, he is looking onto Apsley House where he lived so quite a lot of 'Wellington' stuff here.
