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.


  • Discover Wellington memorabilia, including medals, trophies, silver plate and porcelain.
  • Browse information compiled to commemorate the 2015 bicentenary of the victory which brought peace to Europe after 23 years of conflict.
  • View one of London’s finest art collections, including paintings by Velazquez, Rubens, Goya, Breughel and Titian.
  • Wonder at the grandiose state dining room, with its breathtaking crystal chandelier and silver-gilt Portuguese tableware service.
