London Marble Arch or Marble Arch is an area within London, England, United Kingdom. It was named after the Carrara marble monument that lies on a roundabout at the junction of Edgware Road, Bayswater Road, Park Lane and Oxford Street. The place was initially only open for royalties and ceremonial processions. The locality is famous for being home to the Marble Arch monument and the United Kingdom's largest Marks and Spencer store. It is also very popular for being near several celebrated tourist attractions.
The design by John Nash was based on the triumphal Arch of Constantine in Rome and was originally positioned on the Mall as an entrance to Buckingham Palace. However, once the Palace was extended in 1851, the arch was moved to the corner of Hyde Park. If rumours are to be true, it was moved to its current position because the Royal Coach could not fit through the arch.
