This 45-minute tour of Somerset House will take in Tudor intrigues and the "King's Shilling", and the extravagant entertainments of the Georgian Enlightenment. As you explore the graceful staircases and atmospheric Deadhouse, you will get to see some scientific curiosities and learn more about British naval power.
Somerset House is one of the last surviving mansions that originally lined The Strand. Beyond the entrance courtyard (containing some spectacular water fountains) you will find the Embankment Galleries and the world-famous Courtauld Gallery.
