Apsley House is currently under going its winter clean as well as conservation works to the exterior of the building; as a result there is currently No Disabled Parking available at the site. The Basement Gallery is also closed for refurbishment; all other areas of the house will be open as usual on weekends.
Please note that Velázquez's The Waterseller of Seville and Portrait of a Man are currently on loan to the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Pope Innocent X is also on loan to the Hermitage in St. Petersberg.
Two Young Men eating at a Humble Table is still on display at Apsley House.

Addresses don’t come much grander than 'Number One London', the popular name for Apsley House, one of the most interesting visitor attractions in London. Home to the Duke of Wellington after his victory over Napoleon at Waterloo, the interior of the house has changed very little since the days of the Iron Duke.
It boasts one of the finest art collections in London, with paintings by Velazquez and Rubens as well as a wonderful collection of silver and porcelain. Pride of place goes to a massive nude statue of Napoleon. Why not include a stroll through nearby Hyde Park, and a visit to nearby Wellington Arch for a great value family day out in London.
