Meet your Waterloo

The Duke of Wellington's London residence, Apsley House ("Number One, London"), will be a fitting place to celebrate Waterloo Week, June 14 to 22. Tour the house, meet Redcoats and Regency ladies, learn about the sumptuous banquets and magnificent porcelain and silver, and discover David Wilkie's painting "The Chelsea Pensioners Reading the Waterloo Despatch".

Children can listen to a storyteller and make masks complete with crowns and tiaras. Entry will be free at the weekends and on Waterloo Day, June 18. Information: 020 7499 5676.
