The Wallace Collection, located in the heart of London, is one of the most prestigious and unique museums in the world. Founded in the 18th century by Sir Richard Wallace, the museum houses an exceptional collection of fine and decorative arts, including paintings, sculpture, furniture, arms and armour, and porcelain.

The collection's masterpieces span from the 15th to the 19th century, and visitors can marvel at works by renowned artists such as Rembrandt, Titian, Fragonard, and Gainsborough. In addition to the stunning artwork, the museum's interiors are equally as impressive, with lavishly decorated rooms that transport visitors to another era. The Wallace Collection offers a one-of-a-kind cultural and historical experience that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

      Relatively small museum with wonderful display of interior fittings of a Victorian noble mansion. Paintings were not the most attractive collection there but the wonderful furniture & fittings. They have an interesting collection of armours. What was more appealing to me were the 2 imperial wine cups which were lost during the Opium War, whereby it’s stated that only 4 existed in the world!

      My girlfriend became a member and she has visited the gardens many a time and told me to come check out the Mexican day of the dead display. I thought I do love an event with skulls and I wasn't disappointed at all. It was a great display and they had plenty of skulls. I saw some skull candles and they sadly weren't for sale, they need to get some for sale. The gardens of course are amazing the range of floral and fauna is spread over a large area and you need to wear comfortable shoes and clothing as the green houses are very hot and they are so beautifully maintained. You can spend many hours in here watching all the flowers and plants which are so beautifully done. I loved it here and it's worth going if you love a wonderful garden. I highly recommend here and I will attach my photos for you to enjoy.Please press like if you found my review helpful. Cheers

      One of my favourite places I have visited in London. Absolutely stunning.This collection is FREE for the general public to view.The Wallace Collection is a national museum housing the wonderful works of art collected in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, the illegitimate son of the 4th Marquess.I would recommend 2hrs to visit. Giving you an adequate viewing time of the collection unless you go down the rabbit-hole of looking at all of the miniatures or are really into armour.

      The collection is absolutely stunning pieces of art work. It has to be the best exhibition I have been to so far.🖼 It is literally in the heart of London and the admission is completely free of charge. There is a cafe inside too which serves great food and service.☕️There is also afternoon tea served here. We ended up spending 2-3 hours there. It’s a hidden gem worthy of being explored. 💎I would also recommend it if you want some cool aesthetic photos.

      This is a great little exhibit in the heart of London. It’s free and you just walk in, no ticket required at all. We went in quite late so I’d say feel free to enter anytime before 5pm. We spent about an hour in here but I would say 2-3 hours is perfect. The different coloured rooms, the painting, the items were so amazing and pretty. I definitely recommend especially to get some cool photos.
