“Historic splendour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

The house, grounds and furniture are all so opulent. The art and pieces of interest were the cherry on the pie, one of my favourite days in UK. Some of the chandeliers are breathtaking, who cleans it all? What a job. The restaurant is a nice way to end and let it all sink in. Superb collection.

“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

I have visited the Wallace Collection on many occasions and it still never fails to impress. I like how the rooms are set up and kept, as well as the many fine works of art, porcelain, furniture, the upholstery and wall coverings are a thing of great beauty in their own right. The armour and weaponary section could take a whole afternoon to get around it is so comprehensive, I really do think the WC has something on offer for everyone.

“So much to see here; the guides make it live”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

There is so much top quality art here - almost too much to comprehend, but the guides make it accessible and highlight the mian items. Nice (though expensive and inefficient) cafe)
