Apsley House stands at Hyde Park Corner in the center of London and is often referred to as 'Number One London' due to the fact that it was the first house past the tollgates at Knightsbridge. It was the home of the first Duke of Wellington and shows much of his history and his excellent art collection, including an enormous naked statue of Napoleon. Part of it still accommodates the current Duke of Wellington and it is run by English Heritage as a museum and art gallery. It is a grade one listed building with rooms being kept in the original style and decor where possible.
