Lots to see and do at The Wallace Collection
The Wallace Collection in London's Marylebone is a collection of artworks from the 18th and 19th centuries, created by the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, the son of the 4th Marquess. The works are showcased at Hertford House, one of the Wallace family's properties in the capital, back in the 19th century. Lectures, workshops and courses allow visitors to gain a more informed, hands-on approach to the gallery.
