Hidden behind Oxford Street, I think this is one of the best galleries in London. In some places it's almost like wondering through somebody's house: there are staff and they are helpful, but not intrusive. The laughing cavalier, a good crop of Canelettos and other...More

How splendid to have been not only rich, but with impeccable taste, like Mr. Wallace. Such a surprise to stumble upon this treasure. Loved the art- Rembrandt, Titian, Rubens and others. Then too, there is the girl on a swing.

An absolutely unmissable art collection in the heart of London! From Dutch/Flemish painters to the room dedicated to Venice, to the armoury rooms at ground level, the French furnitures, the Italian bronze works or the German wax figures. Impressive. Brilliant!

What a gem! Can it really have been a "townhouse"? It's a really lovely museum, of a size that is manageable, full of small rooms with exquisite collections of paintings, furniture, artifacts of every description and always something to consider and study.

Wonderful collection of paintings, ceramics, militarily and furniture. Room after room of treasures. If you wondered where the Laughing Cavalier painting was housed then look no further. Astonishing range of bronzes, wax medallions and glassware. Well worth a visit.

Insightful and educational collection of medical related things. Smallish place so you should finish in 1 hour.

This is a hidden gem and it has a massive collection of historical pieces. A great example of history and you can imagine what it would have been like in it's hay day. I would recommend this to other people.

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
