Somerset House

Art Galleries

Set in the heart of London, Somerset House is a centre of arts and culture and the perfect destination for an afternoon of relaxation and inspiration. Undisputedly one of the best things about Somerset House is the building, originally built as a Royal Palace in 1547. The house has such a rich historical tapestry, having changing ownership more times than changing exhibitions.

Today Somerset House remains a hub of activity through out the year. With 55 fountains pouring in the courtyard during the summer months and magically transforming into London's most popular skating rink when temperatures drop at Christmas. It also hosts London Fashion Week, live gigs with globally renowned artists and the famous Film 4 summer screening of classic films, such as The Shawshank Redemption. This is a lot more than an art gallery, this is a centre of excellence in all areas of the arts.

However if it is exhibitions you are looking for, look no further. The Coultaurd Gallery is open all year round showing the finest in early Renaissance to 20th century paintings, drawings and sculpture. A fast turnover of contemporary exhibitions also means there is always something new to see when you are next in the city.

Prices

Exhibitions priced individually.

General admission to Courtauld Gallery is £6 for adults and £4.50 for concessions.
