Marble Arch

Marble Arch was designed by Nash more or less after the Arch of Constantine' in Rome and the building was originally erected in 1828 in front of Buckingham Palace. It was removed in 1850-51 to its present site where it was an entrance to Hyde Park until 1908. The arch is constructed of Carrara marble.

The station was opened as MARBLE ARCH on 30 July 1900.
