Hyde Park Corner

Close-up of the Quadriga on Wellington Arch :
Hyde Park Corner, London, UK

A lot of corners in London are filled with statues and memorials to generals and wars. Hyde Park Corner is no exception. There is an equestrian statue to Sir Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington and memorials to Australia and New Zealand for their contributions during World Wars I and II. The corner also includes the great Wellington Arch. We were in a bit of a hurry, so only took pictures of the Wellington Arch and the New Zealand memorial.
