This is similar yet much grander than the Frick museum collection in New York. Collections are awesome. Each room the history the artifacts grandly dispalyed. The collection of armour and swords and even horse armour that made these mounted ny armed knights a force to be dealt with. An absolute must see.

Quirky collection of a 19th century collector with some splendid pieces ( including the Laughing Cavalier). Nice restaurant/ coffee shop in courtyard of the old mansion. Right in the middle of London near Marylebone Village and Oxford St.

Lovely place to visit for an afternoon just enjoying paintings and walking through the marvellous rooms! The interiors are beautiful, its as if you've stepped back into a very opulent time. It was a nice glimpse of their lifestyle before. The Wallace Collection also houses the very popular "The Swing" painting which was a inspiration behind the visual aesthetics and... More

If you like art but Historic Old Town Houses (including antique furniture) as well, you just need to go! Because they have a fine collections of eighteenth-century French paintings, porcelain, furniture and gold boxes. I loved the paintings from Boucher, Fragonard and Pater. But all the snuff boxes with minitiature painting on it were beautiful too. They also have paintings... More

The Wallace Collection is one of those places we've never quite got round to in London and decided to try it when we had a spare day. The collection is set in a beautiful 18th century house and there is a wide range of different items on display. They have a particularly fine collection of Sevres, along with 18th century... More

A really great museum in Marylebone, excellent collection of art, silverware and furniture with a very nice restaurant/cocktail bar. Incredibly well located in a charming building on Manchester Sq. Very well worth a visit.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods 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 from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
