English Heritage: Apsley House, The Wellington Museum

About

Experience the grand rooms of Apsley House, the magnificent home of the first Duke of Wellington, commander of the allied army that defeated the French and Napoleon Bonaparte at Waterloo in 1815. This English Heritage site is famously known as 'Number 1 London' and is still the residence of the current Duke. Find outstanding art treasures by Velazquez, Rubens, Correggio, Van Dyck and Goya. Ensure you take in the majestic, two-storey Waterloo Gallery banqueting hall with its gilded decoration, sliding mirrors and unique Portuguese silver gilt centrepiece. Audio guides are included in the admission price (also available in French and Spanish). Combine your visit with a trip to the Wellington Arch across the road.
