Marble Arch Landmark Information

Originally built on the Mall as a new gateway to Buckingham Palace, the Arch remains an exclusive thoroughfare as only members of the royal family and the King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery, are allowed to pass through it. As the name implies, the Arch is made from Italian white Carrara marble.

Did You Know?

Your support in staying at chosen conference hotels helps keep conference costs down, which directly affects your registration fees. Sandia National Laboratory guarantees the hotel that we will fill a certain number of room nights or rooms per night during the conference. Sandia incurs penalties if too many attendees opt to stay in other hotels in the area or neglect to indicate to the hotel that they are with the IMR conference. Future registration fees could increase to cover these additional risks.
