Two connected exhibitions will be held in Apsley House, the London residence of the Dukes of Wellington, and Walmer Castle in Kent, where the 1st Duke of Wellington died in 1852.

English Heritage says the Apsley House project will include a small gallery on the Battle of Waterloo and ‘light-touch interpretation’ throughout the house. This project is valued at £100 000.

The Walmer Castle exhibition will involve an interactive introductory exhibition and interpretive displays in the castle’s historic rooms. This is valued at £200 000.

English Heritage says it will accept bids for both projects, or for either as a standalone. The contract will run from May 2014 until March 2015.

The deadline for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is 20 February. For more information visit ted.europa.eu.
