Apsley House is internationally famous as the home of the 1st Duke of Wellington and his descendants. As such it is also a memorial to Britain’s triumph over the Napoleonic threat. It is also significant as a restored historic house, a celebration...more
Both the audio guide and the staff talk added a great deal to enjoyment of this experience. I think it also helped to go to Wellington Arch first to freshly appreciate his place in history. If you are interested in art, allow extra time to...More
The facades that we admire today were created in the early 1800s after the famous Duke of Wellington, of Waterloo fame, acquired the house.
A fascinating history of the times is within, especially accompanied by the informative audioguide. Over a couple of floors we saw...More
I really did not know what to expect. I enjoy my visit to this historical building. It is not set up as a home. The only room is the glorious dining room. The table is set beautifully. I would have loved an invitation to dine...More
I visited the house today with my family. What a waste of time. The lady at the cash, after buying the tickets, told us "you cannot take any photos" ok that is fine, but in the same sentence she continued " but you may purchase...More

Hello, sorry you did not fully enjoy your visit.
I must address the point about photography first, as you actually pass at least 2 signs outside stating that photography is not permitted inside. This is always emphasised at the admission desk so all visitors are...More
For a glimpse of the grandeur and splendid surroundings in which the 1st Duke of Wellington lived, look no further than his palatial residence on the edge of Hyde Park. Amid sumptuously furnished rooms is a gallery of portraits of all the artistocracy and military...More
This was my first visit to "1 London" and I was thrilled. Even though I hadn't slept on a transatlantic flight and was walking around town like a zombie (as my early hotel check-in did not come through) I was captivated and enjoyed the audio...More
I would suggest that you should visit here, and if you do, you should also go to the Wellington Arch which is nearby.
Entry fee for Apsley House is £11, and Wellington Arch is £6, but a combined ticket for both is £12.70.

Thank you for your 5* which is very informative for other visitors.
Glad you enjoyed Apsley House (and Wellington Arch) and we hope you'll visit again in the future.
What an absolute gem of a museum. It is so delightful to walk around in this beautiful house with the many paintings of well known and less known subjects and artists represented . The porcelain collection is astounding and the dining table leaves you breathless...More
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
city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.

You can purchase tickets for each attraction individually or together which actually work out cheaper.
The people who work there will advise you accordingly as they are very good and helpful.
Hope that helps 😀
