Somerset House

Somerset House is one of Covent Garden’s most beautiful buildings. Designed in 1776 to replace a Tudor Palace, it has in its time hosted government departments, scientific and cultural institutions and even a car park.

Since the late 1990s, Somerset House has operated as a versatile and exciting contemporary arts venue, with a dynamic programme of exhibitions, displays, performances and fashion shows.

At various times of the year, its lovely cobbled courtyard plays host to dancing fountains, open air cinema, live music and an ice rink.
