This is an excellent visit that gets better as you go round the house. The art collection is extensive as is the range of porcelain on display. The House itself is likewise worth visiting. There is free entry with a request to make a donation...More

Everything about this collection is wonderful. Although it is smaller than say the National Gallery, it is MUCH more digestible. I was able to wander around the beautifully decorated rooms and look at each picture, statue, or work of furniture in detail without feeling overwhelmed....More

Entrance is free to this wonderful collection of mainly paintings, furniture, sculpture, and armour. In addition, it is not necessary to purchase one of their excellent guide books, as each gallery has booklets that you can borrow that provide detailed information on the exhibits. Each...More

For one family to build up a collection so vast and with so many outstanding objects is rare. Certainly a " must visit" in London

This is a review of an excellent restaurant, captive to its location - which is often a formula for mediocrity. However this was not the case in the Wallace collection restaurant. The location and decor was splendid. Under a glass ceiling and seemingly outside the...More

A conveniently situated, beautiful museum that is completely free. Nice staff and excellent toilets. Nice to visit in the middle of a busy day shopping on Oxford Street.

This is a beautiful building and a fairly extensive art collection. It is fairly large and I thought it was better than the Tate Britain. It took us 2 1/2 hours to see. There is a restaurant in the courtyard but it is expensive.

Recommended by a friend, I was looking forward to seeing what I thought were a few treasures from a previously private collection. I was truly astounded by the scope and quality of the Collection. I don't want to wax too lyrical or it might get...More

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
