The Wellington Arch, a historic landmark on London`s Hyde Park Corner, looks set to boast the newest exhibition space in the capital.
The Quadriga Gallery will host exhibitions exploring the past, present and future of England`s heritage, beginning with an investigation into the stories behind some of England`s most historic landmarks.
Closed to the public for development in December 2011, Wellington Arch was originally built in 1828 to commemorate Britain`s victories in the Napoleonic Wars, and later operated as London`s smallest police station until the 1950`s.
One of the capital`s most popular tourist attractions, visitors are allowed to take a view of the stunning London skyline by stepping out on to balconies of the arch.
Opening ahead of this summer`s highly anticipated Olympic Games, the Wellington Arch is just one of many spectacular attractions available for any of those planning a break in one of the fine hotels in London
, the perfect base for your Olympic experience.
