Somerset House lays on a couple of free guided tours every week, which are well worth doing.

This short one hour tour will show you some of the graceful staircases in the West Wing and the atmospheric Deadhouse, and introduce you to some of the Tudor intrigues that took place in the Strand mansion.

You'll also learn about about British naval power, see some interesting scientific curiosities, and get a taste of the extravagant entertainments laid on during the Georgian period.

If you're more interested in the personalities then you might like to try the Old Palaces Tour of Somerset House instead, which concentrates on the building's Royal connections.
