Number 1 London

Once known as “Number 1 London,” Apsley House was the London home of the first Duke of Wellington, the victor at Waterloo. The grand Georgian home stands sentinel at Hyde Park Corner, facing south towards the busy traffic roundabout in the centre of which stands Wellington Arch. It boasts one of the finest art collections in London (with paintings by Velazquez and Rubens) as well as a wonderful collection of silver and porcelain.
