Getting Here

The Courtauld is located within Somerset House, one of London’s most famous landmarks and right in the heart of the city. Both the Gallery and Art Café can be directly accessed via The Strand entrance of Somerset House.

The Courtauld sits within easy distance of Trafalgar Square, Shaftesbury Avenue, Covent Garden and Bloomsbury – all known hubs of art, education and culture which will be further enhanced by the Strand Pedestrianisation project.
