Apsley House faces the Wellington Arch, the Arc de Triomphe to commemorate the Duke's victory over Napoleon, and an elevator to climb the top, which is included in London Pass. On the top of the arch, besides being able to see, there are also some pictures and text exhibitions that introduce the famous Arc de Triomphe all over the world. The building itself is now an art museum. The Duke of Wellington collected many paintings of great masters. Especially when he fought in Spain and Belgium for a long time and was a personal friend with Goya. So in his collection, Spanish masters such as Goya, Venezuela and Dutch masters such as Rubens and Brugger occupied a large proportion, especially several paintings. Goya painted a huge portrait of the Duke of Wellington. The most interesting collection is a giant white marble nude sculpture at the entrance of the stairs. At first glance, it seems to be the God of war of ancient Greece and Rome. Looking at the face carefully, it is the emperor of Napoleon.
The London House of the Duke of Wellington, Apsley House, is a magnificent palace, the Battle of Waterloo and a great historic journey of Napoleon's lifelong interest. This house retains all the original furniture and wares to see, as well as the Duke's collection.
The Upsley House has been restored to its original decoration. The Duke of Wellington's cultural relics and ownership are still preserved. Not only can we get a better understanding of Wellington's life, but also of this period in British history. We can also book dinner here.
this is one of my favourite and delightful b&b in the uk.The exterior and interior are both simply divine,inside is very tastefully furnished with antiques.Lunch time is very intimate and Cosy where we enjoyed soup and sandwiches next to a lovely inviting open fire.In our room we enjoyed a lovely four poster bed for the night.The b&b is in a very nice area so you will sleep like a baby.The gardens are very pretty and in the summer months it's nice to enjoy a cold drink in the garden.The breakfasts are very simple and are the usual cereals and fruit,fresh coffee,tea,fresh orange.This hotel are very welcoming of children.
Compared with other famous houses, the general's house is very simple in appearance, and there is no special feeling when he walks outside, but there is still a little surprise when he walks in. The content is very rich. It not only introduces Duke Wellington's life story and achievements, but also shows a large number of rich products. If you are interested in the history of Britain, especially the history of war, I believe this House will be a good choice.
Because of the super bull Leondon pass, I went to Apsley House to see if it was the Duke who lived or the feeling of luxury.
This is a building with a history of more than 200 years. There are nearly 3000 paintings, sculptures, works of art and so on.
