Description

ONE WINDOW ONTO HISTORY

People come from all over the world to find out about the events of 18th June 1815.This was the battle that brought an end to the 22 years of war of the Revolution and of the Empire. From now on Europe would know a relative peace.

In 1815, the former Bodenghien inn, a building dating from 1705 that now houses the Wellington Museum, was a coaching inn. This vast construction was chosen by the British Military as headquarters for all the army staff. The Duke of Wellington, commander-in-chief of the allied armies, stayed here on the nights of 17th and 18th June 1815.

The museum can be found in the centre of Waterloo, opposite the church and the Waterloo Tourist Office.

Renovation of the Wellington Museum: the museum is still open, we are sorry for the inconvenience caused by the works.
