“wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2014 NEW

This is a wonderful, delightful, collection presented beautifully. However do not eat at Oliver Peyton's restaurant. The food is most unpleasant. Tastes reheated but arrives at the table cold.

“A Favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2014 NEW

The quality of the Wallace Collection and it's relative intimacy for a museum is a great combination. there are some wonderful items here. I have been several times for a variety of purposes - to visit the museum, for lunch in the restaurant, for corporate drinks parties etc. It is lovely.

“A fascinating collection.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2014 NEW via mobile

We decided to walk to the Wallace Collection from Paddington mainline station and it was just the most amazing discovery. Tucked away in a quiet corner of London near both Hyde Park and Oxford Street, the house is simply bursting with beautiful paintings, a staggering collection of armoury, amazing wallhangings and more. After our fill of these wonderful artifacts, we ended our visit with a cream tea in the fabulous courtyard tearoom. A visit is definitely recommended

Hidden away behind Selfridges , we had not heard of this collection before but really enjoyed our visit. Very interesting collection. Cafe was lovely if a little pricey.
