Wellington Museum

Apsley House, home of the Dukes of Wellington since 1817, is one of London's finest residences. It became known as 'No.1 London' because of its position just past the toll-gate into London from the west. The sumptuous interiors house the first Duke's outstanding collection, almost entirely given to him in recognition and gratitude for his defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo. This includes paintings, porcelain, silver, swords and batons, medals and memorabilia. Apsley House is the last great London town-house with collections largely intact and family still in residence
