Apsley House has been restored to its original decoration, and the relics and attribution of the Duke of Wellington are still preserved. Not only can you gain insight into Wellington life, you can also gain insight into this period in British history, and you can also book dinner here.
The London House of the Duke of Wellington Apsley House is a magnificent palace, a great historical tour of the battle of Waterloo and Napoleon’s lifelong interest. This house retains all the original furniture and is worth seeing silverware and porcelain, as well as Duke's collection.
Opposite Apsley House is the Wellington Arch, which commemorates the Duke’s victory over Napoleon. On the top of the arch, in addition to being able to see, there are also some pictures and text exhibitions introducing famous triumphal arches around the world. The building itself is now an art museum. The Duke of Wellington collected many masters’ paintings, especially when he fought for a long time in Spain and Belgium, and he was a personal friend with Goya. Therefore, in his collection, Spanish masters such as Ge Ya, Velázquez, Dutch masters such as Rubens and Bruegel, these two schools account for a large proportion, especially there are several huge portraits of the Duke of Wellington painted by Goya. The most interesting collection is a giant white marble nude sculpture at the top of the stairs. At first glance, it seems to be the god of war in ancient Greece and Rome. If you look closely, it turns out to be Emperor Napoleon.

Robert Adam designed house that was formerly the home of the Duke of Wellington. Contains some interesting displays and memorabilia about the Duke and the Battle of Waterloo. Look for the giant statue of Napoleon.
