We were in London over the Christmas holiday and made the rounds of many of the excellent museums. It wasn't until our 2nd week that we made it over to see the Wallace Collection, but it was instantly one of the highlights of the entire...More

I'd previously lived in London for many years but, for some reason, had never managed to get to see the Wallace Collection. On this visit, as it was close to where I was staying in Marylebone and had a couple of hours to kill, I...More

very harmonious collection of 18th century art. Visibly built with exhibition in mind, yet sufficiently cosy to have the feeling of a home. One draws inevitably a parallel with the Frick Collection in NYC.

While you're enjoying the art, and I did-especially Rembrant's portrait of his son and the recently restored Canalettos, don't forget to reflect on the lives led by the people who lived here amid this amazing wealth. And conversely, the lives led by those who did...More

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
