Apsley House Makeover

Mar 23rd, 2011 | By

For many the rather grand building on the north side of Piccadilly as you walk towards Hyde Park looks rather like a Victorian gentleman’s club. To those who know, this is Apsley House, the home of the famous Duke of Wellington. He took a lease on it from his elder brother and, by 1820, it had been remodeled to be almost as it is seen today. It is the last remaining town house in London that hasn’t been sold off, turned into flats, demolished or totally turned into a museum.
