The Wallace Collection is one of London’s hidden gems, found in Hertford House at Manchester Square.
It was bought by the Marques of Hertford in 1797 and built up by four successive generations of his family, who then left the entire collection to the nation.

- SarahCroft – “National gallery, tick. Tate britain, tick. Tate modern, tick. So where to go next? After perusing a guidebook for a while I Decided on the wallace collection, and boy was I glad that I did. This gallery is absolutely fantastic just for the interior alone. The rooms are truly lovely and knock the socks of all the other galleries I have been too. And I was surprised to find so many paintings by the masters like titan, rembrandt, rubens, canaletto, van dyck.. I could go on. And the best thing of all is that it is only five minutes from the shops in oxford street. .”
