Hope you are having a fabulous week so far! I have very interesting venue tip for you this time. You can visit this venue with friends, colleagues, family or host an event there.
Last weekend I went for an afternoon tea at The Wallace Collection in central London, just off Oxford Street. The venue, Hertford House, has 25 galleries featuring paintings, furniture, porcelain and much more from the 18th century. According to the brochure the museum also displays works of the greatest artist including Rembrandt and Velázquez. We spent about an hour walking around and contemplating all the impressive art pieces in different galleries on the ground floor and finished the tour with a traditional afternoon tea at the The Wallace Restaurant in the courtyard .
The courtyard largely benefits from the daylight and it feels like being in a garden. This same space can be transformed to host gala dinners or receptions. Other galleries on the ground and first floors can be also transformed to event space with dinner capacity ranging from 24 to 160. The courtyard is the biggest event space and has capacity for drinks reception up to 300 and dinner for up to 160.
I loved the venue because it is very central, but still outside the main street in a tranquil area. The building is very impressive and knowing that it used to host the Spanish and French embassies before becoming a museum in 1990 enhances the experience when visiting this beautiful place. It is a perfect venue for intimate, high profile events for attendees with love and appreciation for art and history.
