  • A hidden gem in London. I was staying in London for a few days and this showed up on my google maps when walking. I certainly was very impressed with the whole collection and spent a few hours going round. Good little gift shop at the end with fair prices as well. I would definitely recommend visiting if you are in the area.
  • History buffs, this is right up your street. Beautiful exhibits. Whether it’s the suits of armour and weaponry or the astounding gilt carvings and fine pottery. The tea room in the courtyard serves a lovely afternoon tea for the full “British” elegant nibbles and tea experience.
  • This art collection is stunning! The Wallace Collection covers many collections- paintings featuring Dutch & French masters, miniatures, an armory & Middle Eastern antiquities to name s few. There period furniture, beautifully set rooms. The Hertford House has been there since 1797, the facade is getting a remodel but the collection is open~ I highly recommend it!
  • Great museum to experience for the afternoon. Amazing artifacts I loved the Armour section fascinating. Great coffee served in the restaurant not the quickest of service but enjoyed when it eventually arrived.
  • Absolutely phenomenal! How did I not visit here before on one of my prior trips to London. Don't miss this place if you are the slightest bit impressed with interior decorating and art. Beautiful in every way and very manageable to do it in a few hours plus you'll have time for a delicious pastry in the atrium style cafe in the middle of the building. A gem!!!
