Wellington was arguably the most significant British military commander so it’s not too surprising that there are monuments to him all over London and the rest of the UK. This one is quite similar to the one in front of the Royal Exchange in the City of London, with the Duke on horseback on a pink granite plinth. Here he’s flanked by soldiers from four of the regiments he commanded, each representing one of the four parts of the United Kingdom. This memorial is overshadowed by the imposing Wellington Arch behind it and other monuments all around it but worthwhile all the same.

Nice statue of the Duke on his horse Copenhagen. It looks at Aspley House the dukes home. Like the statue of Achilles close by this again was made from bronze of French canons.

The vast traffic island in which this statue shares pride of place with the Wellington Arch, the Royal Artillery Memorial, the Machine Gun Corps Memorial, and, most recently, the sixteen bronze sticks on a hillock commemorating New Zealand’s dead in two World Wars. It portrays Wellington on his horse Copenhagen on a campaign on a plinth surrounded on each of four sides by a representative British soldier from a different regiment. It was executed in bronze by the sculptor Joseph Boehm and unveiled in 1888. It directly faces Apsley House, Wellington’s former residence.

The Duke of Wellington statue is located in Hyde Park Corner within view of the Wellington Arch. It’s a bronzed, equestrian statue standing on a plinth of what I assume to be Portland Stone.
