Mr Monkey at Tavistock Square

"Let's see where the Iron duke used to live"

Mr Monkey scampered across the road to Apsley House, which was also known as No. 1, London, when London was a bit smaller than it is today, and Arthur Wellesley, first Duke of Wellington was living there. You're not allowed to take pictures inside, so Mr Monkey can't show you any of the presents that people all over Europe gave to Wellington after he defeated Napoleon.

There's a page about Apsley House at the English Heritage website.
