No traffic cone

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

It is located just below the South East corner of Hyde Park. You will pass it with the bus city tour.

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
