“Wallace Collection review”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Whilst the collection is fabulous, it is not suitable for young children, and is often too warm in each room. We found the restaurant to be extremely expensive - as my wife pointed out - we are not buying the cutlery / plates, just using them.
Still, it is really an excellent collection, but is only suitable for those who are interested in art.

“A gallery that is easy to miss”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This is a real gem among galleries in London reached by walking up the street to the right side of Selfridges. Very impressive town house setting with a very impressive collection of French and Dutch paintings. Huge armoury collection as well and lots of pretty miniatures and snuff boxes. Town house setting quite striking and no where near as crowded as the better known museums and galleries.

“Beautiful Place. Incrediable Art and Armour”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Entrance is free. This place is underrated in my opinion. With so much to do in London it is easily overlooked so no crowds. Had a wonderful 1 hour tour with a knowledgeable and graceful hostess. Leave a donation. So worth it.

“hidden gem behind Selfridges store”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Free entry , amazing paintings , ceramics and armoury in a nice square off Oxford Streetclose to tube / buses . Nice museum and great restaurant in the atrium in the centre of the building serving a wide range of food and drink . Our cream tea in the afternoon was delicious included scone and clotted cream with jam and three cups of tea each at a very cheap price for central London . Worth a visit for that alone
