No. 1 London is the address for this grand former home of the Duke of Wellington. Loved all the artwork, fascinating history, informative guided tour plus spent couple of hours looking around independently. Would definitely go back again.
Easy to find, interesting display of all the dinner services and other things presented to Wellington in his time, plus nicely restored rooms, and great pictures. A good place to visit if you are interested in British history
I was not planning on visiting Apsley House, instead choosing Kensington Palace. Wrong choice. Kensington was dreadful, and certainly not what I would regard as a historic place in its present state. So I was very pleasantly surprised with Apsley House.

We visited this lovely house in April.

Came here with the London Pass, so didn't pay the £5 or so entry fee. There is a good, free Audio guide included in the ticket.
On the ground floor the rooms are less formal, but have a great selection of plate and dinner services....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.
