As town houses go, I've seen worse...

This is Apsley House, the London residence of the 1st Duke of Wellington… general and politician; he of the famous boots, kicking Napoleon's arse (poetic licence here) and publishing and being damned etc etc.

And yes, the light really is that yellow… too much isn't it!

Enlarge for full neon magnificence….

Perhaps the Duke of Wellington needs a lesson on white balance?! ;-)

You mean, because the "big" N was a short-arse, he gave him the boot?

Seems rather demure compared to Blenheim.

I used to visit Apsley House when it was 1 of the outstations of the V&A Museum and therefore came under the Dept for Education and as the DES Welfare Officer I had to go wherever there were staff. It is a stunning building.
