APSLEY HOUSE & WELLINGTON ARCH
In celebration of Museums at Night, The Lanesborough is delighted to offer hotel guests a rare and authentic insight into the fascinating Regency period of English history with which the hotel shares its roots. Guests at The Lanesborough are invited to explore the corridors of neighbouring Apsley House after hours, with period music and tales of the house’s fascinating history.
One of the grandest addresses in the capital, formerly known as‘Number 1 London’, Apsley House is the original Regency home of the Duke of Wellington. A hidden gem in London, the house is stocked full of masterpieces from Rubens to Velazquez, and priceless historical artefacts including the stunning Waterloo Shield, presented to Wellington in 1822 to commemorate his victory over Napoleon Bonaparte.
For families, the Waterloo Weekend commemorative event gives guest the opportunity to re-live the drama and grandeur of the Napoleonic War.
