Why is it, that anyone who visits London, never goes to see, or writes about the magnificent Marble arch. I recently visited London for a few days as a visitor, and our hotel room overlooked this wonderful majestic archway. It sits there in all its regality through the London lonely dawn, with empty streets and little traffic. It watches calmly as the bustle of the rush hour commences all around, and listens silently through to the creshendo of the day, until dusk, when once again it stand in serene silence. It has few visitors. None of the crowds of the other London sights, and this enhances the beauty of this lone monument. When you stand underneath it you can feel the presence of history, and if you touch its cold marble walls, you can sense the ancient glory for which it was erected. You can lose yourself in the dreams of the past, and the visions of the future. All of this, right in the heart of our London metropolis. Do visit this peaceful but under-rated monument and catch briefly the majesty of this forgotten symbol.
