If you’re after elegance, history and stateliness as your back-drop for Christmas, The Wallace Collection will tick all your boxes. The venue stands tall as both a national museum and one of London’s most prestigious townhouse venues. With its world-class collection of old masters, the Great Gallery makes an indelible impression for dinners and receptions, while the leafy, glazed Courtyard is a lovely setting for drinks or seated dinners. For more intimate gatherings, there is a suite of elegant drawing rooms and a selection of smaller dining spaces.

Reception venue hire starts from £7,000 while dinner and dance venue hire starts from £11,000, both based on a three-hour slot starting at 6.30pm – don’t worry, there’s always the option of extending it in to the wee hours of the night.
