In the centre of the Hyde Park Corner traffic island stands the Wellington Arch (or Constitution Arch), designed by Decimus Burton as a memorial to the Duke of Wellington and originally providing a grand entrance to London. It was built as a northern gate to the grounds of Buckingham Palace. Originally, the arch was topped with an equestrian statue (by Matthew Cotes Wyatt) of the Duke, but it was subsequently replaced with the current work, entitled The Angel of Peace descending on the Quadriga of Victory, dated 1912, by the sculptor Adrian Jones.
Other monuments at Hyde Park Corner include Jones's Monument to the Cavalry of the Empire (off the west side of Park Lane), Alexander Munro's Boy and Dolphin statue (in a rose garden parallel to Rotten Row, going west from Hyde Park Corner), the Wellington Monument (off the west side of Park Lane) and a statue of Lord Byron (on a traffic island opposite the Wellington Monument).
In the post-War years Park Lane was widened and the area around the arch became a large traffic island, mostly laid to grass. The traffic island area includes a smaller equestrian statue of Wellington, the Machine Gun Corps Memorial, the Royal Artillery Memorial, the Australian War Memorial and the New Zealand War Memorial. A tunnel beneath the junction allows traffic to flow freely between Knightsbridge and Piccadilly. The Queen Elizabeth Gate and the Hyde Park Corner Screen are on the boundary of Hyde Park at Hyde Park Corner. To the north of the roundabout is Apsley House, the home of the first Duke of Wellington.
"Hyde Park Corner" was used as a code to announce to the government the death of King George VI in 1952.
The 1935 film Hyde Park Corner takes its name from the area, where it is set.
The term is often erroneously used for Speakers' Corner, which is located at the north-eastern corner of Hyde Park.
