The Wallace Collection is still my favorite Museum. So many Canalettos. We took the tour today at 11:30. We were so lucky. We ran around 12 minutes over time because of Gabrielle's enthusiasm. I would have kept going another hour. She answered all our questions,...More

Tucked away, quiet and free with some lovely art (we nearly missed the beautiful Fragonards) and great lunch in the very attractive courtyard cafe.

pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
