I find the Wallace Collection an excellent place to visit, and I have made several visits to it in the past. It is an enjoyable and interesting place to visit. The collection is now a national museum.

The collection is the work of five generations of an aristocratic family. These were four Marquesses of Hertford and an illegitimate son of the fourth Marquess - Sir Richard Wallace.

For the record, Sir Richard lived in France and is still remembered today for the creation of the Wallace Fountains which he designed himself and many are still in operation today in Paris. Clean drinking water for all.

In addition to the collection they have a library which is open by appointment. (If you wish to visit the library, you should call +44 (0) 7563 9528)
