Only in London are there grand houses that simply display art. And this is one of the best with one-of-a-kind pieces from all over the world.We stopped in for a brief visit (free) and stayed all day. We got recharged with cookies and tea in...More

A few friends and I stopped over here for a few hours after coming across it by accident, and we were so glad we did! The armories on the ground floor are fascinating, and the art collection itself is a real treasure trove. The venue...More

We visited for the first time and enjoyed the free guided tour of some of the highlights of the collection. Our guide made it so interesting and yet we probably only saw 1% of what is on show. If you want a break from the...More

Fabulous couple of hours wandering around and a pleasant coffee in the courtyard. Lots of interesting paintings, furniture, sculptures, clocks, pots, armour and other fascinating stuff. The Smartify App was useful but not massively informative. There were information books about most of the items but...More

I visit the Wallace Collection at least twice a year and it never fails to impress me. An amazing collection of paintings - the grand gallery is simply wonderful. It’s a must for any art enthusiast.

Large enough to be utterly wonderful, yet small enough for a comfortable half day visit, The Wallace collection is very digestible and I had a great day here by myself. I was struck by the friendly staff who were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the...More

A free museum, the Wallace hosts a genuinely quirky collection. Most of it did not appeal to me, but the paintings were outstanding and included some truly one of a kind pieces, such as the Laughing Cavalier.

I adore the Wallace Collection - it's such a high quality collection, and it's relatively "off the beaten path", so it's not overwhelmed with hoards of tourists. It reminds me of the Frick Collection in New York: a grand old mansion that has been converted...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

It is fairly large and the size of the crowds does not seem to be a problem at any time.
