Marble Arch, London
Marble Arch: Once a royal gateway to Buckingham Palace
Marble Arch has been at its present location, a junction between Oxford Street, Park Lane and Edgware Road, since 1855, although it was originally intended to be the royal gateway to Buckingham Palace when it was first constructed in 1828. Made of white marble, as the name suggests, it now marks the north-east entrance to Hyde Park. Based on the triumphal arch of Constantine in Rome, the arch does actually have small rooms inside, once used as a police station, although they are inaccessible to the public. Marble Arch has also now come to include the area around the site, particularly the top end of the Oxford Street shops, including Primark, department store Selfridges and the UK's largest Marks & Spencer. Also located in nearby Hyde Park is the notable Speakers' Corner, as well as the contemporary art displays at the Serpentine Gallery.
