Apsley HouseOriginally the London residence of the first Duke of Wellington, Apsley House was designed and built by Robert Adam between 1771 and 1778 and retains some of the finest Regency interiors around. The house formed the elegant backdrop to a host of glittering banquets which mirrored the rise in status of the Duke. Held in the opulent Waterloo Gallery, the feasts were a decadent and raucous annual celebration of the Duke's landmark victory at Waterloo. The Wellington family still reside in the property to this day making Apsley House the only property managed by English Heritage in which the original owners' family still live. The property is colloquially known as 'Number 1 London', because it was the first house encountered after passing the tollgates at the top of Knightsbridge. The Duke's former abode is today home to paintings by Velazquez, van Dyke and Rubens as well as an unrivalled silver and porcelain collection. You can combine your trip to Apsley House with a visit to Wellington Arch just across the road with a joint ticket for just a few pounds extra.
