The Wallace Collection

A little hidden gem for you lovely lot today. You may know that a little behind Oxford Street is somewhere you may just want to put on your to-visit list; The Wallace Collection. I originally came across this wonder thanks to Olivia and Jaymie The national museum a truly exquisite site to behold full of incredible art collected in the 18th & 19th centuries by the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, the son of the 4th Marquess. The collection was then given to the British nation by Sir Richard’s widow Lady Wallace in 1897.

The reason for my visit was to meet my lovely friend Natalie for a catch up over brunch! It’s the perfect Sunday afternoon spot if you ask me. The restaurant at The Wallace Collection is a very wonderful powder pink and the light shining through the atrium is beautiful. I had boiled eggs and soldiers which you’ll see from the photo below I was very happy about, whilst Nat had avocado on toast. Both were delicious and the staff were super friendly.

I shall certainly be visiting again soon during these Autumn months to grab a coffee/hot chocolate and something sweet during an afternoon I’m in central. A great spot for you to visit for lunch with friends or to have a quiet 30 mins to yourself if you’re ever in need of an escape from the madness of central London. Have you got any hidden gems in London I should visit? I’d love to add some more to my little black book of London and explore some places I haven’t seen before.
