From catwalks during London fashion week, to summer film screenings in the courtyard under the stars (remember a pillow - that concrete can get uncomfortable!), to a wintery ice rink for the Christmas season; Somerset House is a year-round cultural and events destination.
The iconic historic building offers a broad range of artistic activity throughout it's many rooms and gallery spaces, offering visitors a chance to engage with artists, designers and makers and be a part of a major creative forum. The Sony World Photography Awards, Big Bang Data, and the current showcase UTOPIA 2016 are some real highlights.
The courtyard - home to a beautiful public fountain installation - is a popular public meeting space, with visitors relaxing in one of the outdoor cafe areas, or simply wondering around to admire the beautiful architecture.
