The Duke of Wellington bought Apsley from his brother and made it his London home. It is full of memorabilia of the great man and his arch rival Napoleon. The rooms available to the public (the family still retain use of part of the house)...More

This was the Duke of Wellington's House he bought mainly for displaying his vast collection of paintings. This house is beautifully furnished with magnificent items that really must be seen and admired. Everyone should make a visit here.

Visited as a member of English Heritage. Received a warm welcome from staff. Enjoyed an interesting visit through the audio guide. Plenty of seats to sit on throughout and not too busy.

The home is very interesting to see if in the area the rooms are well laid out with an audio guide so you can move around at you own pace there are knowledgeable guides around so you can stop one and ask questions if needed

When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And
when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already
got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the
perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion
walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this

Apsley house and the Wellington arch are just across a street from each other but are seperate attractions and tickets. The arch is inexpensive and has a small museum and a nice view at the top. You can see photos from my... More
