Marble Arch Guide

Famously, only members of the royal family are permitted to pass through Marble Arch, which is an actual arch near Hyde Park. It was originally erected on The Mall, but was then moved to its present location near Speakers Corner. Interestingly, there are three tiny rooms inside Marble Arch that were used as a police station up until 1950.

It received a renovation that cost 75,000 pounds in 2004, and for many years it has been seen as something of a white elephant, with many people wondering just when it might be moved back to The Mall, or even somewhere else. Since no one can use it unless they are blue-blooded or part of the armed forces, it stands there just to be looked at rather than touched or actually entered. The fact that it was originally built as the entrance to Buckingham Palace and then moved because it was apparently too small has given weight to the theory that the Mall could be welcoming it once again in the future.

A tube station of the same name serves it, and it is here at Marble Arch station that you can pick up your car hire. Once you leave the station Marble Arch is pretty much the only thing you can see. It's huge, and does look a little out of place.

Some interesting points about the place include the fact that it is nearby the largest Marks and Spencer department store in the country. It also used to house London's largest cinema screen. Perhaps more gruesomely, but no less historical, is the fact that the area is near to the site of the old Tyburn Gallows, a place where, until 1793, people were hung.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
