Somerset House

Somerset House is an 18th century building, which houses the celebrated collections of the Courtauld Institute of Art, Gilbert Collection and Hermitage Rooms. Until the nineteenth century Somerset House reached the waters edge, but this was changed with the building of the embankment though the southern face of the building still features boat moorings. In the winter the central courtyard is home to an open-air ice rink. At other times, an array of fountains display vertical jets of water rising to random heights.
