We loved our visit to this art gallery/historic home. We were doing one of our neighborhood walks and bumped into it. Make sure you take the free tour. Takes a bit longer but you learn a lot bout the house , people and art collection.

Stumbled upon this by accident. Wasn't really sure what to expect but was amazed by the size of the collection - from paintings to armour to weaponry.

A beautiful largely undiscovered spot, centrally located, with a spectacular collection and lovely cafe for tea following. Great place to meet a client or old friend.

A superb collection of French art and furniture. London has so many magnificent galleries. I had never visited this one. You could spend many hours here. I lasted about two hours, and then my brain needed re-charged. So I then retired to the cafe in the atrium which is also good.

A large collection of well-known and valuable art works. Immaculately kept building and well displayed. As a 'free' attraction it is a 'must see'. Allow at least three hours for a visit, there is so muchy to see, including the largest collection of arms and armour in London!

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
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 from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
