Note

Apsley House, located right at Hyde Park corner, is a very beatiful private mansion, once the house of the famous Duke of Wellington. It can be the perfect conclusion, or also the beginning, of a stroll along Hyde Park; moreover it is a nice place where to go when it rains!
You have to pay a ticket to visit it, but you receive also a free audio-guide that explains the most amazing pieces of art during the visit and give some interesting tales about the Wellesleys family (who still lives in the house!).
The main gallery, which hosted the yearly celebration of the Waterloo battle, displays some masterpieces of the 16th/17th Century: Ribera, Velazquez, Rubens, Correggio.
Unfortunately there is no coatroom or cafeteria.
