Somerset House

The Courtauld is located on the Strand in Somerset House, a grand historic building in the heart of London’s West End. Built in 1779, it was the original home of the Royal Academy of Arts, the Royal Society and the Society of Antiquaries.

In recent years Somerset House has become a major arts and cultural centre: during summer months 55 fountains dance in the courtyard, and in winter you can skate on London’s favourite ice rink.

It also programmes contemporary art and design exhibitions, free displays, family workshops and guided tours.
