    Che strano ...non ci passava la carrozza reale!!
    Questo arco è davvero strano non tanto per la sua architettura ma per la posizione dove è collocato. Leggendo le guide turistiche ho appreso che era stato progettato nei primi anni del 1800 con l'obbiettivo di crearne un arco trionfale per l'accesso principale al palazzo Reale prendendo spunto come si nota facilmente dai ben più imponenti archi del Trionfo di Parigi e di Costantino a Roma. Osservando bene ifatti la cosa strana è che sulle tre porte ci sono dei cancelli che nella posizione attuale non hanno alcun senso e utilità. Infatti l'arco è stato spostato e ricollocato qui perchè dopo averlo costruito ci si accorse che non ci passava la carrozza della Regina !!! Incredibile ma vero ora si trova alla fine con Oxford street ed è rivolto vero Hide Park anche se preciso è errato dire come ne sia l'accesso allo stesso. Infatti dietro l'arco c'è un grande piazzale con le aste di bandiere e panchine per il relax. Da qui bisogna attraversare ancora una strada per entrare all'interno del parco attraverso un apposito cancello. Comunque lo si voglia o no qui ci si passa quasi per forza nel girovagare per la city e quindi non costa nulla e nenche tempo fermarsi un attimo per vedere questo arco intermente costruito con marmo di carrara nella sua splendida veste bianchissima.

    all'ingresso di Hyde Park
    Questo arco, la cui architettura si rifà all'arco di Costantino e all'arco di Trionfo di Parigi, si trova nell'angolo orientale dell'ingresso ad Hyde Park con la omonima fermata dell'underground. Prima si trovava a Buckingham Palace, fu poi smontato e ricollocato come ingresso monumentale al parco.

    Such a noisy area it spoils it
    Like the Arc de Triomphe but on a vastly smaller scale. There's so much traffic around, the best way to view it would have been to stand right back and walk up to it but if you do that you'll get run over. You can't climb up so it's more of a folly than anything else.

Brilliant musical in recreated set of 1950's New Orleans Jazz club.
The theatre is amazing , its a temporary theatre set up in Marble arch, you can have cocktails beforehand.
Price included the programme
All seats are good seats as wrap round stage.
Bring a round cushion if you don't like hard chairs.
It was very warm inside.
Brilliant music, great story, vibrant singing, dancing and live band.

Walking to the show was cold and miserable but inside the theatre the atmosphere was warm and welcoming just what we needed.
The show was fabulous and so entertaining for such a small venue.
Five Moe's and Lomax what talented guy's, entertainment at it's best for all the family.
The audience participation was low key and you didn't have to join in but you couldn't help yourself.
Turned out to be a great winter warmer.

The Arch itself is beautiful and an understandable attraction to those visiting London , its great before you hit the shops down Oxford street, HOWEVER , the homeless eastern Europeans that populate the area is shocking .. they agressivley beg , are dirty and noisy ...ive seen them deficate in the middle of the park in full view of people and seen another (woman) topless bathing in the central fountain/pool ...what the hell !!!??? Marble arch is also the area of Edgware road where the middle Eastern community are , they are pretty rude and if you are a woman alone , be careful , they also commandeer all the coffee chain chairs and think they own them , its pretty intimidating , if you want a drink or bite to eat , go to Oxford street instead

The new pop up Marble Arch theatre very easy to find close to the tube station. It has the feel of a jazz club and serves drinks and cocktails in the bar. The non alcoholic cocktails were very tasty and good value for a west end show. The show was excellent the actors have so much energy and enthusiasm thoughout the show its all very entertaining with actors moving round the theatre and fully engaged with the audience. The seats enable you to see from pretty much anywhere as it is a circular theatre and the actors move around a lot. Its a fun evening and it is guaranteed to lift your mood.

Went to see Five Guys named Moe last night which is a show that encourages audience participation however when we participated we were treated very rudely by the usher and told to sit down as apparently there had been complaints about us. After this it was very hard to enjoy the rest of the show so me and one of my friends decided to speak to the manager. On leaving the stage area we were surrounding by about 5/6 security guards. We are two females and our behaviour did not warrant such an approach. The manager came to speak to us but all the security were still around is which was very intimidating. The manager was ineffectual and nothing was resolved. This morning I spoke to someone else about their experience and was informed that the usher had talked to a couple who were enjoying themselves singing along to the music. It appears that audience participation is only encouraged for some. On the whole a very disappointing experience at this pop up theatre and from the Underbelly staff.

I am a huge fan of jazz and love musicals. Conventional theatre holds no interest for me but I was thrilled and absolutely on my feet at this show last night. From the very beginning it was clear we would love this show although our (very low cost) seats didn’t provide the best viewing angle, we had a fab evening.
The singing and dancing is superb and the audience engagement had us all clapping and, at one point, doing the conga at the remission! Great fun!

I will always remember last nights performance and want to say to the actors, orchestra and everyone involved, ‘very well done’.

If you want fun, fab entertainment and a night to remember and talk about........go! Have fun!

I grabbed a bite to eat from the local Sainsburys then crossed the road to sit on the park benches by Marble Arch.
What I witnessed was shocking and a total disgrace. Nearly all the park benches were occupied by Eastern European homeless people. There were loads of them. The area was awash with litter and cardboard that I assume they use to lay on. I felt very uncomfortable and somewhat intimidated.
It's an area that you should avoid as its very unpleasant.
It is unforgivable how the authorities have allowed this to happen.
I will definitely not be returning.

Marble Arch is a triumphal arch that was the state entrance to Buckingham Palace. It was relocated in the mid 18 hundreds when Queen Vic wanted more room for her growing family. The Arch was then, in the 1960s, oddly stranded through road restructuring. It is now on a large traffic island at the junction of Oxford Street, Park Lane. 'Marble Arch' is now also the name of the area southern portion of Edgware Road. The short road directly to the north of the arch is also known as Marble Arch. The arch itself stands close to the former site of the Tyburn gallows the infamous place of public execution.

I like the much mooted idea that the arch should be moved again. This time, to Hyde Park across the street. This would make it more accessible. It's present location on a large traffic island isolated it.
