We enjoyed the everything this gallery had to offer. The works of art, porcelain and collection of armour were all fascinating. The coffee and cake delicious! A warm welcome and great service.

We visited specifically in time to join one of the hour-long "highlights tours," and were delighted with the time spent hearing stories that would never be on a little plaque next to a painting, sculpture, or piece of furniture.

The collection is housed in a extended townhouse in a nice neighborhood. We spent an hour on the tour, and maybe another hour just looking around on our own.

Definitely worth a trip.

I know this collection well as I used to live just around the corner, but the place has improved out of all recognition in terms of dining and also the way the collection is displayed. There is something for everyone and I couldn't recommend this London treasure any more highly. It really is a hidden gem, that is often overlooked by tourists and Londoner's alike.

I hadn't really taken much notice of this before and it was my mum who wanted to visit when she came to stay. Well I'm glad she did, it is a gem of a collection, really interesting range of pieces and a beautiful building. A lovely way to spend a few hours and they have a lovely cafe in the middle.

This is one of the greatest collections ever amassed by a private individual now available for all to see. The vastness of the collection always amazes me. There is always something previously overlooked to absorb ones interest. The Bonningtons are particularly worth a visit. Hertford House is a place of both visual stimulation and tranquility in the centre of London.
