Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of Apsley House  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

This is your chance to explore Apsley House after dark, when it takes part in the London-wide "Museums at Night" event.

Apsley House was home to Britain's greatest-ever general -- the Duke of Wellingon. After his defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo he went on to become British Prime Minister and then Constable of the Tower of London.

Craig has been to Apsley House a couple of times now, and thinks that is well worth a visit (read his review here). Some of the rooms are very grand indeed, especially the famous Waterloo Gallery, which is like a mini-version of the King's Gallery at Kensington Palace. Amongst the pictures that the Duke managed to nab are pieces by Rubens, Reynolds and Velasquez.
