Somerset House

South Building, Strand

What you need to know

Somerset House, the impressive Neo-Classical building that stands prominently along the bank of The River Thames, attracts millions of visitors each year. It’s not hard to see why, having been originally built as a Tudor palace, the architecture and sheer size of the building are mesmerising. Stepping through its arched entrance and into The Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court is really a sight to behold. This inner courtyard is surrounded by the wings of the extensive building, each offering a wealth of spaces available to hire for private events - 16 in total. There’s the light and bright Portico Rooms, one of their most popular spaces, suitable for conferences, dinners, receptions and product launches alike. Holding up to 200 standing, it comes with two terraces overlooking the courtyard and The Thames, as well as four separate breakout rooms. Then there’s the Embankment Galleries, a large space made up of several vaulted arches that when lit create an inspiring atmosphere. It also offers a fantastic opportunity for projection. Other spaces include the Seamen’s Hall, River Terrace (an outside spot along the river), and the Lancaster room, a new area that sets itself apart from the other rooms due to its more raw and exposed finish.
