You might need to take a map to find it, but when you do, the Wallace Collection is definitely something you will be glad you made the effort to go to.
In this sumptuous historic London town house you will find some great examples of 18th and 19th Century art, and all for free, thanks to the widow of Sir Richard Wallace bequeathing the collection to the nation in 1897.
If you're not convinced, or in a rush, then the collection is worthy of your attention for one thing especially, and you really would be doing yourself a disservice if you decide not to see it for yourself - for the Wallace Collection houses the original painting by Hals "The Laughing Cavalier". The up-turned moustache and goatee beard wearing cavalier is a true masterpiece, known by all, and therefore at a grand sum of zero pounds to see it up close, is an absolute bargain if ever there was one...
Whether you are an art fan, a historian (or indeed an art historian), or simply just an inquisitive person like me, take yourself to the Wallace collection and be inspired by the art of yesteryear.
