Marble Arch Hotels - London

Mini guide to Marble Arch

     

Marble Arch is a central area from which to reach Oxford Street for shopping, Hyde Park for walking and Mayfair for upscale dining and shopping. It sits at the end of Oxford Street, beside Hyde Park corner.

Marble Arch, designed by John Nash in 1828, was originally intended to be the entrance to Buckingham Palace, however, after completion, it was found to be too narrow for the queen's coaches to pass through and was moved to the current location 1851. Now only senior members of the Royal family, the King's Troops and the Royal Horse Artillery are allowed to ride or drive through the Arch. Marble Arch also stands near the site of the old Tyburn gallows, where London's most notorious criminals were hanged; a plaque commemorates this.

Selfridges, right near Marble Arch, is housed in an impressive Edwardian building and is a shopper's mecca. It boasts six floors of goods from clothes to cosmetics, but is probably best known for having the most excellent food hall in London.

For those who love Middle Eastern/Lebanese food, nearby Edgware Road is the place to go. There are many excellent restaurants here, but the by far the best is Maroush 1 at 21 Edgware Road; they have other branches as well, but this was their first restaurant. It is both a bistro and restaurant (catering to different wallet sizes), but be sure to try the chicken wrap!

The location is wonderful as you are within walking distance of so many attractions and various shopping areas, but not really in the centre of it all. Marble Arch tube station is on the Central Line and the rest of London is easily accessible by changing at either Notting Hill Gate or Oxford Circus stations.
