The Wallace Collection is a National Museum containing unsurpassed displays of European art, furniture and porcelain. The collection was established in 1897 from a private collection created primarily by the 4th Marquis of Hertford. On his death, the house and collection were left to the nation on the condition that no objects within the collection should ever leave, even on loan.
With its excellent Central London location, just behind Selfridges, it makes for a fantastic, extravagant party venue and the driveway makes for a special arrival especially when lined with lanterns. The Drawing Room suites are a series of adjoining rooms forming an inner and outer loop. The inner is perfect for a drinks reception for smaller numbers of guests and the outer as a reception space before dinner in the Great Gallery.
The Courtyard is a slightly more contemporary space. Originally open air, it now has a glass roof so can be used for entertaining all year round. The space comes complete with trees for an outdoor feel as well as two beautiful urns which you can fill with floristry.
Our Back of House team always love working at the Wallace Collection as they are based in the armoury for the evening! Our venue specialist, Ginny, has a soft spot for the Dining Room for intimate dinners and thinks that duck egg blue damask cloths are a must, to go with the beautiful silk lined walls.
Reception capacity – 300
Dinner capacity – 160
