Amaze your group with the glittering interiors of the grandest address in the capital, once known as ‘Number 1 London’. Apsley House is London’s only surviving aristocratic town house and still a residence of the Dukes of Wellington today. The mansion has changed very little since it was the London home of the famous first ‘Iron Duke’, after his great victory at Waterloo in 1815. The house was refreshed in 2015 to celebrate the bicentenary of the battle. A detailed multimedia guide will help your group to explore the house, including the dazzling Waterloo Gallery.
Complete your visit by crossing to Wellington Arch opposite. Built to proclaim Wellington’s
defeat of Napoleon, it’s crowned by Europe’s largest bronze sculpture.
