NOTES: Also known as Number One London, this was the London residence of the Dukes of Wellington. Originally built in red brick by Robert Adam in 1771-1778, it was remodelled for the first Duke of Wellington by Benjamin Dean Wyatt in 1829-1829. The Waterloo Gallery, added in 1829 by Wyatt, was intended specifically to accomodate the annual Waterloo banquet.
