Discover what is hiding behind the most visible traffic island in London!
Number 1, London: the address is easy to remember, the site is unmissable – who has never driven past Hyde Park Corner? – and the house is full of invaluable treasures. Together we will relive the great Napoleonic epic story and explore the house of the victor, the imperious Duke of Wellington.
We will talk about battles won and lost, statues and horses, wives and mistresses, not to mention the treasures that fill that historic house: sumptuous old master paintings, beautiful silver services and sets of porcelain, and also some rather more surprising curios. And frankly, who could resist the temptation of seeing Napoleon naked? Come and join us at Hyde Park Corner for an unforgettable morning of discoveries.

– Wear ultra-comfortable shoes.
