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.

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.

This statue is dwarfed by the wonderful Wellington Arch, but the detail is great and it is worth a few minutes to examine. The Duke of Wellington is mounted on horseback, surrounded on four corners by soldiers from his regiments. An interested little statue that adds to a great location in Hyde Park Corner.
