“A lovely, underated museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Behind Selfridges, in darkest Oxford Street lies one of the underated museums of London. Primarily a museum of Painting and sculpture, it is a very pleasant environment, with a large central courtyard, with refreshments and a large pond.Very central to get to, as Bond Street tube station is only a few hundred yards away, it is lovely to dip into and spend an hour or so, return again for further browsing

“Tea and scones with abundance of culture.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I simply loved this venue. A lovely garden cafe and cream tea. Interesting musuem and a lovely garden to take in the sun with a glass of lemonade. All right in the heart of London. 5 minutes walk from Selfidges, Oxford Street and Marylebone village.

“A great small collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

A terrific collection in an environment which is peceful and uncrowded (at least when I was there). I think it is one of the gems of London galleries/museums.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Beautiful collection of amazing things in the heart of London and yet in a very quiet location. The Wallace Collection is free but it is well worth making a donation although there is no pressure to do so. Lovely restaurant.
