  • A long basement room displaying only twelve paintings all by the Flemish painter Frans Hals (1582-1666). The centrepiece is still the iconic Laughing Cavalier from the Wallace Collection itself...

  • A hidden gem in London. I was staying in London for a few days and this showed up on my google maps when walking. I certainly was very impressed with the whole collection and spent a few hours going round. Good little gift shop at the end with fair prices as well. I would definitely recommend visiting if you are in the area.
  • History buffs, this is right up your street. Beautiful exhibits. Whether it’s the suits of armour and weaponry or the astounding gilt carvings and fine pottery. The tea room in the courtyard serves a lovely afternoon tea for the full “British” elegant nibbles and tea experience.
