The Wallace Collection is a treat of a museum in London. There is a rich array of art as well as a grand collection of pottery, glass and armor. The courtyard serves lovely food.

There is a marvellous range of artwork and clocks from 17th Century Dutch, to and Baroque and Roccoco work from France. Beautiful interiors and 15th Century treasures such as illuminated letters from old manuscripts hidden from the damaging daylight in draped display cabinets.

the building is magnificent and the itinerant collection of nude bodies drawings from the 19th century in France was great. I love the place and the atmosphere.

The fact that this collection is as it was when left by its collectors. It was bequeathed to the British nation by Lady Wallace, in 1897 and has many items that will be familiar. Staff are knowledgeable and helpful.
