Monday 29th January at 10:15am (meet) – 10:30am (start)

Meeting Point: In front of the Wallace Collection, Hertford House, Manchester Square, London W1U 3BN.

Come and join us for a special focus on French fine and decorative arts at the Wallace Collection.

Together we shall discover the opulence of the stately Boulle furniture, the delicacy of the Sèvres soft-paste porcelain, the theatricality and sensuality of the representations of ladies at their toilette, the intricacy of the precious wood marquetry, the rococo volutes of the ormulu mounts and the sheer luxury of the dozens of gold snuff-boxes, all this in one of the world’s most beautiful museums!

Advice to participants:

– Wear ultra-comfortable shoes.

– Check weather forecasts and make sure you have warm and waterproof clothes if necessary. Being cold on a walking tour can spoil the entire experience.

– Do not hesitate to bring a little snack with you (nuts or biscuits) and a flask of your favourite drink.
