Breaking News ! If you're ever walking around Soho you might see something strange and think you must be seeing things. But no, you could very well have seen a human nose protruding from a building.

Another tall tale is that it was put in place to mock Napoleon, and that every solider that passes through the arch has to tweak it - making sense given the location of the nose near the Horse Guards Parade. Alas, this isn't true - firstly because it wouldn't explain the other noses around the area, secondly because the installations are much newer.
