  • 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.
