Constitution Hill is a road in the City of Westminster in London. It connects the western end of The Mall (just in front of Buckingham Palace) with Hyde Park Corner, and is bordered by Buckingham Palace Gardens and Green Park. The term "Hill" is something of a misnomer; there is barely a detectable slope and most observers would regard the road as flat. An old lane on this route was enhanced in connection with the development of Buckingham Palace in the 1820s. It formed an official route from the palace to Hyde Park. It is now closed to traffic on Sundays.

  • Constitution Hill es una calle de la Ciudad de Westminster, Londres. Conecta el extremo oeste de The Mall, frente al Palacio de Buckingham, con Hyde Park Corner, y está bordeada por el y Green Park. El término Hill («colina») es una especie de nombre erróneo; apenas hay una pendiente detectable y la mayoría de observadores considerarían que la calle es llana. Antiguamente discurría a lo largo de este recorrido un camino que fue mejorado en la década de 1820, en conexión con el desarrollo del Palacio de Buckingham. Forma una ruta oficial desde el palacio hasta Hyde Park. Actualmente, está cerrada al tráfico los domingos.
  • Constitution Hill is een straat in het Londense Westminster. De weg verbindt het westelijke deel van The Mall met Hyde Park Corner en loopt tussen Buckingham Palace en Green Park (park). Hoewel er een geringe verhoging in de weg is, is de naam ‘Hill’ nauwelijks gerechtvaardigd. In de jaren 1820 werd een smalle weg heringericht in verband met de ontwikkeling van Buckingham Palace, om een officiële route te vormen van het paleis naar Hyde Park. De weg is op zondag gesloten voor verkeer. Er is nog een straat in Engeland met de naam Constitution Hill, in de stad Birmingham.

  • Constitution Hill is a road in the City of Westminster in London. It connects the western end of The Mall (just in front of Buckingham Palace) with Hyde Park Corner, and is bordered by Buckingham Palace Gardens and Green Park. The term "Hill" is something of a misnomer; there is barely a detectable slope and most observers would regard the road as flat. An old lane on this route was enhanced in connection with the development of Buckingham Palace in the 1820s. It formed an official route from the palace to Hyde Park. It is now closed to traffic on Sundays. The road obtained its name in the 17th century from King Charles II's habit of taking "constitutional" walks there. In Strype's Map, 1720, it is marked "Road to Kensington". In John Smith's map of 1724, it is called "Constitution Hill". It was the scene of three assassination attempts on Queen Victoria—in 1840 (by Edward Oxford), 1842 (by John Francis) and 1849 (by William Hamilton). In 1850, the former Conservative Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel was thrown from his horse on Constitution Hill by the gate into Green Park; he suffered a fatal injury and died three days later. Wellington Arch at Hyde Park Corner was originally the culmination of the route, but the effect is somewhat muted now that the Arch stands at the centre of a busy traffic island. There is a recent war memorial to Commonwealth soldiers near the top of Constitution Hill, just before Hyde Park Corner; the memorial is known as the Memorial Gates. Large concrete lamp posts were installed in Constitution Hill in the 1960s. Thanks to the swift intervention of comedian and enthusiastic environmentalist Spike Milligan, they were removed within days and the old gas lamps are still there. There are other streets called 'Constitution Hill', for example in Birmingham and Ipswich.
