Marble Arch is a stop on the Central Line Tube and lots of buses go by there from every direction. Marble Arch is on the Northeast corner of Hyde Park.
Marble Arch itself is a white Carrara marble monument near Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park. It was built in 1828 by John Nash. He designed the arch based on the triumphal arch of Constantine in Rome. It was originally erected on The Mall as a gateway to the new Buckingham Palace. In 1851, the arch was moved to its new location during new building work at the east front of the Palace, (a popular story says that the arch was moved because it was too narrow for the Queen's state coach to pass through, but in fact the Gold State Coach passed under it during Elizabeth II's Coronation in 1953.) Historically, only members of the royal family and the King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery were allowed to pass through the arch in ceremonial procession. Today, the arch is open to pedestrians.
