Those Who Nose


Bluebell & Xavier at The Wallace Collection, London

Those Who Nose



Mungo & Maud is taking you for an escapade in London with a very special guest. Art Historian and Director of The Wallace Collection, Xavier Bray & his adorable pug Bluebell are sharing their favourite addresses for a perfect day in the city.


Kensington Gardens
Kensington Gardens, London W2 2UH

We walk through Kensington Gardens and swim at the Serpentine Swimming club at 8.00 am.  Bluebell sits by one of the benches and waits patiently until I come out of the water. She sometimes chases a swan for fun but never aggressively.

Monocle Cafe, 18 Chiltern Street

We then have coffee together at the Monocle Café in Chiltern street, a trendy coffee bar that attracts the local intelligentsia.

Bluebell then comes up to my office at the Wallace Collection, Manchester Square, using the back route to avoid the galleries and public area (she knows she is not allowed there!).

She settles down in her favourite bed and becomes Lady Wallace for the day, sometimes attending meetings and making sure everybody is well and ready to offer a bit of dog love to anyone who needs it.

Bluebell enjoys lunch at Patty & Bun, 54 James Street

Bluebell loves lunches in Marylebone with a particular fondness for St.Christopher’s Place, especially now that it has been pedestrianised.  She particularly likes Patty & Bun, the lamb burger is her favourite.
