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

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.

They really need to chop down the tree that almost hides this statue. A lovely monument to Wellington.
