One of London's unsung artistic homes, the Wallace Collection provides a top quality range of pieces; from paintings by the masters such as Titian and Rembrandt to one of the biggest collections of arms and body armour, the Collection has something for everyone. Whether you have an eye for art or just enjoy learning about the history of a variety of pieces, you will be guaranteed to enjoy something at Hertford House.

It includes much more then the paintings and body armour. There are many fine examples of classical furniture, sculptures and ceramics to enjoy. An example of all of these pieces can be found in the back state room.

For those that wish to learn further there are daily guided tours around the house which include information about its previous residents, about the exhibits and any other questions that people may have. The guided tours will also inform you about any current exhibitions on at the house, such as the current one on "The Art of the Sword".

So overall, if you want to spend an afternoon learning about some of the finest pieces of art and most interesting pieces of history, then the free Wallace Collection is for you.
