I took 137 bus and got off at Marble Arch stopping; I wanted my wander to start from that point. Marble Arch is a 19th-century white marble faced triumphal arch and London landmark. The structure was designed by John Nash in 1827 so as to be the state entrance to the cour d'honneur of Buckingham palace
In 1851, it was relocated and followed the widening of Park Lane in the early 1960s; it is now sited isolated and incongruously, on a large traffic island at the junction of Oxford Street, Park Lane, and Edgware Road.
Historically, only members of the Royal Family and the King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery were permitted to pass through the arch; this happens only in ceremonial processions. The arch gives its name to the vicinity of its site, particularly, the southern portion of Edgware Road and also to the nearby underground station.
A bronze statue of a giant horses head was unveiled at Marble Arch in London on 18th June 2009 as part of a £2 million pound refurbishment of the area.
Bright and shiny everybody!
