Somerset House

Sitting between the Strand and the Thames, onto which its lovely terrace gives, the spectacular Somerset House is a creative hub in the heart of London. With dancing fountains in the summer and a popular ice rink in the winter, the courtyard itself is a mighty sight. As well as playing host to the Courtauld Gallery, here you’ll find temporary exhibitions exploring the links between fashion, architecture and design in the Embankment Galleries (previous shows have included Martin Margiela). If nothing tempts your fancy, check out free public displays in the Terrace and Courtyard Rooms and then head to one of the numerous eating spots, including the fancy Tom’s Kitchen or Tom’s Terrace on the Thames in summer months.
