Fodor's Review

The fine neoclassical architecture on this street was designed as a piece by Archibald Elliot (d. 1823) in 1815. Waterloo Place extends over Regent Bridge, bounded by the 1815 Regent Arch, a simple, triumphal Corinthian-column war memorial at the center of Ionic screens bordering the bridge.
