Butlers and Banquets at Apsley HouseBeing the butler of a grand house is no easy job and through these special Butlers and Banquets tours of Apsley House you'll learn all about the butler to the original resident of No 1 London (as Apsley House is also known), the first Duke of Wellington, who famously defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. Pick up top tips on etiquette, from dressing a table to choosing a menu fit for the Duke. There will also be talks from the curator of Apsley House and you can view the Prussian Service, newly displayed for the first time in the Waterloo Gallery.

 

About Apsley House

Originally the London residence of the first Duke of Wellington, Apsley House was designed and built by Robert Adam between 1771 and 1778 and retains some of the finest Regency interiors around. The house formed the elegant backdrop to a host of glittering banquets which mirrored the rise in status of the Duke. More about Apsley House
