Yesterday was my birthday and my husband and I had a wonderful day in London. Firstly we visited the Wallace Collection which is an historic house with 25 galleries displaying French 18th century painting, furniture and porcelain and world class armoury. I took loads of photos (because unlike in some places you are allowed to). Here are just a few...Stunning examples of just some of the many pieces of 18th century Sevres porcelain in the house.
This is actually a work table!
This is taken from a tapestry and he really appeals to me as does my favourite picture in the house of a 'Strawberry Girl' by Sir Joshua Reynolds.
They have a lovely restaurant here too and for my pudding I had the biggest, creamiest most divine creme brulee I have ever tasted!
Do go if you are in London, it is well worth a visit and free admission.
We had booked seats for 'Jersey Boys', the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and it was brilliant.
After that we had a gorgeous meal in China Town, then home on the train. What a lovely day!
