35: Wellington Arch at Hyde Park Corner

Wellington ArchThe 1815 Battle of Waterloo at last removed France as the most dominant power in Europe and the Wellington Arch arch went up in celebration. For the next 100 years Britain would have control of the key naval trade routes necessary to expand an empire relatively unchallenged. You can climb to the top of the arch for a view of the road junction but not much else. The private gardens of Buckingham Palace are well hidden behind the boundary trees.
