Apsley House

  • Tour Length: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Maximum number of people: 10

The house is a treasure trove filled with history related to the Duke of Wellington, and surprisingly even has pieces of Sèvres porcelain from Napoleon’s divorce gift to Joséphine!
 Wellington was not only a military hero, he was also a bit of a ‘Ladies’ man’ and we will learn more about that.

The collection also includes the centre piece of the famous Portuguese silver service commemorating victories in the Peninsular War and a number of exquisite paintings – including Titian and Velázquez gifted to the Duke by the Spanish royal family.

Maybe lunch afterwards in The Grenadier, the classic pub in a nearby mews.
