Somerset House on the Strand

Located less than a ten-minute walk from Covent Garden, Somerset House still manages to be off the beaten track. The site has tremendous historical significance, having served as a residence for Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth I), and the current structure—which dates to the late 18th century—is an neoclassical masterpiece, featuring numerous artistic exhibitions & events throughout the year, as well as an ice rink in the central courtyard during the winter months.
