The area
Address
Neighbourhood: City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

Standing outside the Royal Exchange is this equestrian statue of the Iron Duke, unveiled on 8 June 1844, 26 years to the date when he commanded the allied forces at the Battle of Waterloo.

This statue is located right in the heart of the City of London on the forecourt of the Mansion House, next to the Bank of England and opposite the Mansion House. It’s one of three monuments to the Duke, who was present at its unveiling on the anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo in 1844. The bronze statue of the Duke and his horse is made from metal melted down from enemy cannon captured at the Battle of Waterloo. Well worth seeing.

Not to be confused with the equestrian statue of Wellington in Marble Arch outside Apsley House, this equestrian statue sits near Bank junction in the City of London. It was built as a vote of thanks to the Duke from the City of London for his assistance in getting passed a bill to provide for the rebuilding of London Bridge. The sculpture was largely the work of Francis Leggatt Chantrey whom Wellington recalled whilst sitting for a later portrait taking him (somewhat undiplomatically) that the Iron Duke had a square head. Chantey died before completing his work so the job was finally done by his assistant Henry Weekes.

It is quite large but "classic" (in form) monument, unveiling by Wellington himself, on the anniversary day of Battle of Waterloo.
Perhaps Wellington deserved something more exposed and elevated (compare Nelson at Trafalgar Square), however this one is properly located as it is overlooking Bank of England and the Iron Duke wins by the number, as there are three monuments to him in London, while Nelson has one only.

This statue is a large statue of the Duke of Wellington (not to be confused with a similar statue near Buckingham Palace).

It’s on a nice raised platform where threqdneedle street and Cornhill meet.

The statue of the Duke of Wellington in my native Glasgow always has a traffic cone on his head and is now an iconic image of that city. So it was nice to come across a statue of the Duke of Wellington which gives him his due respect. It is in front of the Royal Exchange building where many roads intersect.

The Equestrian Statue of the Duke of Wellington as you can imagine is a statue that stands in tribute to the Iron Duke and locate just outside the Bank of England building. The Iron Duke himself attended the unveiling of his statue on 18 June 1844. The same day and 26 years after the Battle of Waterloo.
