The Marble Arch Mound, a big artificial hill built at the end of Oxford Street will be open to the public next month, and tickets are now on sale.

The 25-metre high mound aims to offer elevated 360-degrees views down Oxford Street and into Hyde Park from a perspective not seen before, and be a lure to bring people back into the West End.

Once people have been to the top, the tickets include entry into a hollowed-out space underneath the mound that will be used as a café, shop and exhibition space.

For accessible access, there is a lift to the top.

The mound opens to the public on 26th July and will remain in place until next January.

The opening hours vary depending on time of year, but generally from mid-morning until around late evening.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Build it and they will come, springs to mind.
    It’ll probably be quite good on Bonfire night and New Year’s Eve.

    Lift would have been more useful in Marble Arch Station !

    Unbelievably excited about the mound

    Imagine spending £4.50 just to walk up a hill that’s just over the size of a house lol

      You must live in a very big house if you think the mound is “just over the size of a house”.

    Looks like another eyesore in London

    Looks lovely as a green wooded hill. Not quite so attractive in the autumn when all the leaves fall off. It’s going to take a lot of watering to keep it going. I hope they’ve got the scaffolding well covered.
    This idea works well in Berlin where one of the giant flak towers is turned into a permanently landscaped hill with a hollow centre to visit.

    Can they at least come up with an interesting tale as to where the earth has come from? Northala Fields in Northolt are at least able to claim that the earth came from when Wembley Stadium was rebuilt. Although the irony of having a team of Dutch Architects design and build a hollowed out hill (supported by miles of scaffolding) in London did make me chuckle.
