Tucked away in Manchester Square, minutes from Oxford Street in W1 is a house museum that can help pass an hour or two.

The most beautiful museum. A gorgeous restaurant. The most amazing collection is a very special setting.

One of London treasures - formerly a private home, now left to the national full of art and furniture. Often quiet during the week so great to stroll around without the crowds. Also check website for daily free tours.

Beautiful collections of art, porcelain and armor and armaments. The building is also beautiful. A complete visit will not overwhelm due to the manageable size.

Worth a visit but for me it’s not somewhere I would rush back to soon. It didn’t seem to hold my interest as much as I thought it would.

This Museum should please every Museum visitor. It is not large but very enjoyable. The medieval armour is worth the visit alone, add “The Laughing Cavalier” and you have a pleasant couple of hours.

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.
