  • Wallace collection called-off the beaten path in the city of London was great exhibits as well as a House Museum, worthy use and much visited, including café-restaurant combination of furnishings that leave enough atmosphere of living in the House, such as curtains, furniture, etc.. Or when many of the hotel where to go in as soon as your favorite, the route I-shop-> dining room armor → courtyard in a glass sideways → 1st floor room of pink porcelain bronze statues and furniture started. Rococo Cafe courtyard directly out the back State-room is the most impressive and interesting walks, exhibits and more, while seeing room itself is on the ground floor. I think upstairs to go around the stairs followed by neutral mood of the mansion and Castle was a castle-style building throughout. And see, small drawing room of the mauve room paintings and furnishings → Green → Blue → Division rose (colour wallpapers) the 2nd floor, has again around the floor once again. Suitable for visits to museums and categorized without this place. Acclaim as a beautiful Museum can be visited free of charge are soliciting donations, but Wallace collection, just as a restaurant and will be very surprised. Also, this luxurious mansion Museum called the Stratford area very fun, within the present many dining and shopping district. From George Street in the Thayer Street around window shopping to the Wallace House are the opposite direction Office k・l is much recommended course walk Baker Street.

  • Very impressive collection of Baroque and 18th century art and Dutch Masters. The house itself is also absolutely stunning and beautifully preserved. It also houses an elegant restaurant/cafeteria, it all makes a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of nearby Oxford Street. Oh, and it's FREE.
  • This gallery is free. Due to its status it displays pretty much all the art it has. More grand masters in close proximity than you are likely to find anywhere else. Also period furniture. Like a stately home and gallery rolled into one.
  • Very interesting place to visit. European armour collection is quite impressive. Guided tour to discuss the different paintings was also excellent.
  • well if you haven't much education what a place you can take a person on a date you can have tea or coffee and it's not going to cost that much have a look at the best French furniture makers furniture and Some of the best art in the world for free and instead of looking like a Pratt you look like you might know something
  • Another London hidden treasure. This magnificent house is just offff Oxford Street. It's very well preserved with great furniture, beautiful paintings, breathtaking courtyard and armoury...if you are into that. Overall I love it and I always go back whenever I can.
