GUIDED TOUR OF THE WALLACE COLLECTION AND AFTERNOON TEA
Wednesday 10 October 2018 starting at 2:00 pm
The Wallace Collection is a national museum which displays the wonderful works of art collected in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, the son of the 4th Marquess. It was bequeathed to the British nation by Sir Richard's widow, Lady Wallace, in 1897.
Displayed at Hertford House, one of the family's London properties in the nineteenth century, the Wallace Collection presents its outstanding collections in a sumptuous but approachable manner which is an essential part of its charm.
Among the Collection’s treasures are an outstanding array of eighteenth-century French art, many important seventeenth and nineteenth-century paintings, medieval and Renaissance works of art and one of the finest collections of princely arms and armour in Britain
Afterwards we shall enjoy a champagne tea in the courtyard.
Hertford House is located in Manchester Square, a few minutes’ walk from Baker Street, Bond Street, or Oxford Circus tube stations.
The cost including the tour and afternoon tea is £49 per person. Places are strictly limited, so please book promptly and certainly no later than Monday 24 September.
