its easy to spend a few hours in this family house, holding collections from several generations. Indulge yourself with a tour if you can, but if not, get the handheld tour. The Wallace Collection is a personal house converted into a museum and holding the...More

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

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.

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

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