Just a couple of minutes from the madness of Oxford Street awaits all kinds of glitz and glamour in the super-deluxe haven that is The Wallace Collection. In a former townhouse that once belonged to some seriously wealthy players (the Seymour family, Marquesses of Hertford), this building houses a world famous collection of art that's free to come and take a look at. It's particularly famous for its collection of moody and moralising 18th century French paintings but there's all sorts besides: from armoury and swords to sculpture and porcelain. Each room - and there are many - comes with ornate furnishings: golden chandeliers, velvet walls - that type of thing. Stroll down the grand Balustrade French staircase and stroke that ego. Then head to the cafe out back where you'll find a huge atrium with a glass ceiling, peach walls and plants - a lovely spot for a hot drink and some cake.
