Number One, London

Home of the first Duke of Wellington at Number One, London

Location: Apsley House, SW1X

Description: And what a 'house'...home of the first Duke of Wellington and his descendants, this structure stands right in the heart of London at Hyde Park Corner.

Apsley House was originally designed and built by Robert Adam between 1771 and 1778 for Baron Apsley from whom it takes its name.

When the seventh Duke of Wellington gave the house to the nation in 1947, the family retained the private rooms, which they still use today. This makes Apsley House not only the last surviving great London town house open to the public, but also the only property managed by English Heritage in which the original owners family still live.

Plus...better still...it once had the address of - Number One, London! Outstanding.
