In Service to the Duke – Below Stairs at Apsley House
This is our new exhibition for 2018 in the Basement Gallery. Visitors to Apsley House for the first time will be able to understand how the 1st Duke of Welllington’s household was organised.
The exhibition reveals details of the servant’s lives at Apsley House, who they were and what they earned. Wellington had many long-serving loyal servants who protected the house when it was attacked by the mob and liveried staff who were dressed by one of the finest tailors in London. This glimpse of life below stairs brings to life the forgotten story.
