Yes this is definitely in the perfect position due to being near the Wellington Arch and of course Wellingtons House if Number 1 London - Apsley House so it is not so obvious but a great statement to a great man of British History

This is another of London’s great commemorative statues and in the right place for it as so very near to Wellingtons London house Apsley House (Number 1 London) and also the commemorative arch which is also well worth a visit

This is an impressive statue but seems too ‘obvious’ amongst some of the other monuments that are here on Hyde Park Corner. It’s also to one man, albeit representing others, and that limits its appeal.

A equestrian statue placed in Hyde place corner.Close to it is the more famous Wellington Arch and another few monuments.None of them is really impressive,they are common monuments.You need only 5,max 10 minutes to take photos of it from every angle.

This statue of the Duke of Wellington on horseback stands in Hyde Park Corner opposite Aspley House, which was Wellington's London House. Worth a stop for photographs if in the area.
