Attractions near the Lancaster Gate
Shop at London's first department store
Whiteleys has been a presence in the Bayswater area since 1863, when William Whiteley opened a drapery shop that quickly grew in size and became a sensation of Victorian London's shopping scene. Today, Whiteleys is still a top destination for retail therapy to suit all budgets, with many big name brands represented, from GAP and French Connection to Toys-R-Us.
Whiteleys offers a variety of options for eating out too, whether you're looking for fast food chains, conveyor-belt sushi or chic French bistros. You can also catch a flick at the Odeon cinema complex or put your skills to the test at the bowling alley.
Pass under historic Marble Arch
This iconic Romanesque monument has been a distinctive London landmark for nearly two centuries and is still a popular photo opportunity today. Originally built as a gateway to Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch was later moved to Hyde Park where it now stands, giving locals and visitors the chance to pass through and admire its intricate reliefs.
Marble Arch was designed by John Nash, whose work had a lasting impact on London architecture, from the impressive facades of Regent Street to world-famous Buckingham Palace. Sculpted from luminous white marble, the Arch's relief panels symbolise the nations of England, Scotland and Ireland.
