We are fortunate to have exclusive use of the House for our visit and on arrival at the Visitors’ Centre for morning refreshments we will be met by one of the Home Guides who will distribute timed tickets for entry and guided tour. There is a 5-minute walk to the House, home to the Dukes of Wellington since 1817. The House today is lived in by the 9th Duke of Wellington and his family and whilst the Great Duke’s wonderful collection of pictures are at Apsley House, which was given to the nation by the 7th Duke of Wellington in 1947, Stratfield Saye House contains a fascinating collection of paintings and furniture purchased by the Great Duke with many mementos of his occupation of his modest country home.

There should also be an opportunity to see the Grand Duke’s funeral carriage and the grave of Copenhagen – the famous charger ridden by the Duke throughout the Battle of Waterloo.

 

Lunch, to be taken at members’ convenience and depending on their timed entry ticket, will be served in the Visitors’ Centre and the selection is as follows:

A. Vegetable Quiche and Salad;     B. Meat and Potato Pasty and Salad;

C.  Ham Salad                                D. Cheeses Ploughman

All served with tea/coffee/water
