The Wallace Collection, Hertford House is a very short walk from Oxford Street and shouldn't be missed by anyone who'd love to see how a privileged few were once able to live. It's free. It was originally a wealthy man's country house but he spent very little time there. Instead he travelled Europe, snapping up the most magnificent collection of art and armour and sending it all back to London.. The famous "Laughing Cavalier" painting is in the superb ballroom. There are Canalettos aplenty and if you've ever had any kind of interest in the Rococo, for goodness sake, make a beeline to The Wallace Collection. It has an excellent shop, a lovely restaurant and the best toilets in London, with the possible exception of the toilets in The Queens Gallery. The Wallace Collection is great.
