Venue description

Found amongst the busy streets of London’s West End, the Wallace Collection offers an oasis full of charm and grace. With an extensive display of French 18th-century art, this National Museum offers a distinctive setting for any event.
 
This family Collection never fails to impress, uniquely displayed, guests will immediately be mesmerized by the openness of this Collection, and the opportunity to enjoy the art up close. Reflecting the intimate yet grand feel of the home it once was, the Wallace Collection can accommodate a variety of events.
 
Host elaborate drinks receptions in our First Floor Drawing Rooms or an opulent dinner alongside our famous Canaletto paintings of Venice, your guests will be captivated with a private view of masterpieces by Rembrandt, Gainsborough, Reynolds and Lawrence.
 
Juxtaposed against the traditional interiors of this 18th-century townhouse is the Courtyard. At the heart of the Wallace Collection, previously the sculpture garden, the Courtyard has been covered with a magnificent glass ceiling creating a contemporary garden feel. This offers a blank canvas that is perfect for entertaining at any time of year. From dinners for 160, to drinks receptions for 300, the Courtyard has become one of London’s most popular entertaining spaces and this flexible space offers you a range of branding opportunities.
 
Operating exclusive hire, and with so many entertaining options available to you, the Wallace Collection can accommodate all of your event requirements and offer a memorable and treasured setting to regale you and your guests for the evening. A dedicated events manager will be available to support you at every stage of your event planning and on the evening of your event.
 
Holding your event at the Wallace Collection not only guarantees you a memorable evening, it also contributes to keeping this remarkable and internationally acclaimed Collection free for the public to enjoy, as well as supporting our education and conservation programmes.
