“Fantastic collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

This is a real gem worth seeing. These collectors bought everything imaginable and you will definitely find something of interest. It is housed in a wonderful large home and one can easily imagine the fun they had buying and displaying everything on every single inch of this facility. It's just amazing.

“Amazing collection of beautiful art, furniture and paintings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

The Wallace collection is a gem just north of Oxford street. A beautiful house crammed full of the most delightful and sumptuous art, furniture and paintings. It is well worth a visit and indeed would take several visits to take in all that is on show. It has a lovely cafe in an atrium in side the building. Highly recommended oh and it is free!

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Some outstanding works of art here - popped in and was amazed to find works by Canaletto, Titian, Rembrandt. So this is where to find the 'Laughing Cavalier' and 'The swing'. Fabulous collection of snuffboxes. Definitely worth 2 hours in this quiet part of London - yet close to the shops/ restaurants for the rest of a day in London.

“Superb collection of artifacts and unique pictures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Incredible collection - especially if a fan of Marie Antoinette.. trinkets and mirrors belonging to her and other notable french kings and royalty of past - the best thing is that NO items are loaned out meaning in order to see these items one has to go here
