Within the imposing neoclassical architecture of Somerset House you’ll find a year-round programme of visual and live arts bringing the building alive with surprising and original events. At the heart of the building the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court is a spectacular venue for open-air films and concerts in the summer, and the capital’s premier winter ice rink. With family events, cafés and a restaurant, Somerset House is a thriving centre for inspiration and relaxation in the heart of London’s West End.
