Whilst it's not the greatest view in London, where else can you legally peer into Buckingham Palace's gardens? Depending on how leafy the trees are, your view might be restricted to about fifty feet of gravel path -- but who knows, maybe you'll get lucky and see the Queen strolling past (or more likely, one of her corgis).

The arch's two balconies (one on either side) also offer a decent view down Constitution Hill, the area around Hyde Park Corner, and the Duke of Wellington's former residence at Apsley House.

The interior of Wellington Arch usually houses an exhibition exploring the history of the arch and how it was built. (This is sometimes replaced by a temporary exhibition on an alternative subject.)

Craig has been to Wellington Arch a few times and always enjoyed it. It's something you can do to fill up a quick half-hour, and it only costs a few quid. Check out his review on his London blog. We've also got a page full of other good viewing spots in London.
