The Wallace CollectionThe Great Gallery The Wallace Collection

The Wallace Collection is a National Museum and perhaps one of London’s best kept secrets. Discretely situated off London’s busy Oxford Street, Hertford House is home to an unsurpassed display of French 18th-century art, furniture and porcelain. Amassed over the 18th and 19th centuries by the first four Marquises of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace; the collection was bequeathed to the nation by Sir Richard’s widow in 1897.

The collection is unique in that under the terms of the bequeathment, it cannot be loaned or added to which means that the priceless works of art can only ever been seen here.

The glamorous galleries and the contrasting contemporary glazed Courtyard make Hertford House the perfect venue for corporate entertaining, exclusive private parties and unique wedding receptions.
