London is full of free museums, so why would people pay to go here? Easy, because the Duke of Wellington was awesome (regularly beating Napoleon and his boys). Seriously, the fascinating thing is contrasting his private life (fairly simple, always sleeping in a camp bed)...More

Apsley House (No. 1 London), is still the home of the 9th Duke of Wellington and his family. Some rooms are therefore not viewable as they are private apartments, but there is still plenty to see. The house is much as it would have been...More

Apsley House dates back to the 1770's, and it was built for the Lord Apsley. Hate to admit it, but I've visited Apsley house 10 times. Each time I discover something new. Upon entering you will notice the large statue of Napoleon. It's by the...More

When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And
when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already
