Marble Arch is made of white Carrara marble. It was designed by John Nash in 1828 along the lines of the Arch of Constantine in Rome. Marble Arch originally stood at the end of the Mall as an entrance to Buckingham Palace and was moved to the present location in 1851. Until 1950 the Metropolitan Police had a police station inside 3 small rooms within Marble Arch.
