In the central reservation facing the gate, surrounded by traffic and best reached from underground, is the huge triumphal Constitution Arch by Decimus Burton with Corinthian columns - the biggest in the vicinity - and much additional ornament above, wrought gates with heraldic symbols, and on top the magnificent chariot, horses and winged Victory. This is one of the most impressive sculptural groups in London, and is by Adrian Jones (1912).
