Here are some of the members who came to Banqueting House on Monday 2nd December 2019. It’s not everyone, as there were 31 of us in all and some had shot off ahead:
Visiting London 2 group had a very interesting tour of the house on 29th August 2019. The house was bought by the Duke of Wellington with part of the money he was given after the victory at the battle of Waterloo. Apsley was the first house on the north side of Piccadilly, located opposite a turnpike with toll houses, and consequently it became known as ‘Number 1, London’. Its correct postal address is now 149 Piccadilly. It contains a large collection of very valuable paintings, silverware etc. Unfortunately, the taking of photographs inside the house was not permitted but the grandeur of the building can be seen from the photo taken outside and shown below.
