Concierge.com's insider take:

A treat along the lines of the Frick in New York, wherein the setting is as much of a draw as the art, the Wallace Collection is spread out over the 28 rooms of a gracious mansion in the West End, as if it were still a private home. Amassed by the third and fourth Marquises of Hertford, plus the illegitimate son of the latter, Sir Richard Wallace, the collections consist of a great deal of French 18th-century paintings, furniture, and porcelain, plus oils by Titian, Canaletto, Rembrandt, and Gainsborough. There are also some arms and armor and a notable cache of miniatures. Look in the listings for the chamber-music concerts that sometimes take place here.

Open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; free admission.
