Located in the beautiful Hyde Park Corner, along with many other nice statues and monunents, the Duke of Wellington Statue is maybe the most famous one, along with the Arch and is really an example of representing a British hero.

This memorial for the Duke of Wellington should really be the highlight of Hyde Park corner however the other monunents, memorials and statues here overshadow this wonderful poece of art. The duke of Wellington was one of the leading military and political figures of 19th-century Britain, the vanquisher of Napoléon. This is a beautiful bronze statue of this hero that... More

If you go into Wellington Arch, you can learn more about the Duke of Wellington's influence in this part of London, with the arch itself, Apsley House and this statue. There was a statue of the Duke on top of the arch before the current monument was put up there. I'm not sure if this is the same one but... More

The statue is located on the Hyde Park Corner, close to the Wellington triumphal arch and Apsley House, and is one of numerous tributes to this great military commander and statesman. It is a bronze equestrian sculpture surrounded by four bronze soldiers.

Nice statue to the Duke of Wellington. In Glasgow a similar statue permanently wears an orange traffic cone on his head. Nice to see this statue without one.

Located at the corner of Hyde Park, this statue is a tribute in bronze to the Duke of Wellington. It's worth a visit to see the artistry of the statue.

We had taken and long and enjoyable walk from Paddington, through Kensington Gardens and then on to Hyde Park. Eventually, we ended up at Hyde Park Corner. Across the very busy road we caught sight of Wellington Arch and decided to go across and take a closer look at it. After admiring the arch, we came across the Duke of... More

At the end of a very long day, the Duke of Wellington Statue was the last historic monument that I saw during an exploration of the area around the "old geology museum" - set on Exhibition Road - and Hyde Park. There was just enough time and good light to take a few photographs of the details cast in bronze... More

This statue is OK, but not something I'd go out of my way to see again. Perhaps I have Wellington fatigue. .

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
