Its a lovely place to visit. Not 100% my cup of tea to be honest, I got a bit bored by the end but that's me I'm a philistine.

Thoroughly recommend the guided tour, such interesting snippets of information about the collection. Each guide seems to have their own special interests so it's almost worthwhile going twice! The combination of old masters in art, porcelain and furniture is outstanding, a must do.

Stunning by day and equally stunning by night. Attended a large function, but was able to have a look around the ground floor as well. Staff so helpful as usual. Must book for lunch there, but it is so popular as behind Oxford Street and...More

This is the last relatively uncommercialised free public art gallery in Central London. It is often possible to stand and look at the paintings rather than the other people in the Gallery. The collection is wonderful. I particularly like the Dutch interiors and the charming...More

Even though the building is relatively small, there are a large number of rooms and a huge quantity of displays. Well worth a visit - with a glass-roofed restaurant.

Sadly we only had an hour at the Wallace collection, but what we managed to see was fantastic. Hertford House itself is an architectural gem; the 25 galleries are full of the most sumptuous art from the 15th -19th centuries as well as furniture, arms...More

A stunning collection of art and decorative arts. Art historians: be prepared to spend longer than you planned and also to bump into some old favorites you forgot were here!

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
