This beautiful little gallery is always a must visit. It has a place in my heart. So many lovely works of art that you will recognize, enjoy and appreciate. Easy to find, walk a few blocks east of Trafalgar Square.

The gallery is just to the right as you enter the gates to Somerset House. The main galleries are on the first floor but although the staircase is rather beautiful there is, of course, a lift. The gallery will surprise many due to the fact...More

I just happened upon this museum as I was walking by Somerset House and decided to stop in only 30 minutes before it closed. I was amazed at the number and the quality of the art there, especially the Impressionist paintings. If you like Impressionists,...More

£8 per adult, less for seniors and children. Check if there are any offers on line etc we were using British Rail to and from London and you can get 2 for 1 on entry but you need to apply in advance and download a voucher.
