Very impressive Status of the Duke - but the location isn't the best - hard to really see it without getting up close - and tougher to navigate walking. But still worth the effort if you are visiting the Wellington Arch and heading into Hyde...More

This lovely statue is on the same park as the Wellington Arch and is sadly facing right into the foliage of a large tree. This makes taking pictures of it rather hard. The base is hard to miss though with Wellington etched across both side...More

The Wellington statue is right beside the Wellington Arch and you might as well view it as you walk by and give it 5 minutes on your busy day,

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.
