We walked over to Selfridges, then up to Manchester Square and there it was. Entrance was free and we were just stunned. What a fantastic collection of everything, decorative items, armor (too much for my taste), and paintings. This was probably around our 20th visit to London and we had never been there before, although it had been on our “if we have nothing better to do” list. Just an amazing place. Michelin gives it three stars. I would give it four!

The big collection represents one of the most incredible places to visit in London. I have been twice and I shall go again in the future if possible. The collection of miniatures is excellent, as it is the collection of arms from many European and Asian countries. A very nice collection of furniture, tables, ceramics, clocks. Many pictures from the romantic era that you will recognize because they are well known in catalogs and art books.
The cafeteria and the souvenir shop are more than excellent.

Went here on the recommendation of family - what a place! The decor, paintings, china, furniture - I could go on and on - are exquisite and priceless and a joy to see. We joined an hour long guided tour, a guide with excellent knowledge and very entertaining. She picked out specific objects and paintings and told us their background and how they came to be purchased by Richard Wallace for his collection at Hertford House. You could easily spend two to three hours just wandering around, admiring the beauty and splendour of it all. Free admission, but donations are encouraged. A nice restaurant/cafe in the central, covered courtyard. Wonderful!

This museum is packed with art of all different types. You could easily spend the whole day there. The history of the collection is also fascinating. There is also a café/restaurant in the courtyard where you can get snacks or full meals. A bonus- entry to the Collection is free.

I had visited the Wallace Collection a few years ago, and as we were free in London we revisited. The story behind the collection is fascinating and the collection itself is entertaining. We spent all day (well two hours before lunch and two hours after lunch) and covered most of the ground floor. We intend to return at some time to see more.

What a lovely place for lunch. The old courtyard has been covered over and it is now the most lovely setting for a restaurant. We had a light lunch which was excellent. Not cheap but not ridiculous. Highly recommended.

From the outside this doesn't look all that different from many of the large residences in this part of London but inside it is the most amazing mansion, full of the finest rooms, furnishings and works of art. I expected to be impressed by this building and its collections but it far exceeded anything I imagined. We both loved the high ceilings, gilt cornices, elaborate fireplaces and ornate lights. Every item of furniture - tables, writing desks, display cabinets, mantle clocks, grandfather clocks - is a classic piece with an interesting history. The paintings and sculptures are master works by renowned artists. The porcelain collection is amazing and we spent far longer in the armoury collection than we anticipated - we have never seen any comparable collection, even in grand castles. Also on the lower level at present is an interesting display telling the story of Sir Richard Wallace with individual items beautifully displayed which can be photographed without reflections. We found that learning of his humanity and philanthropy seemed to enhance the tour of the mansion. Once you reach saturation you can recharge in the rather upmarket restaurant at the rear. There is something here for everyone. Highly recommended.
