Address Somerset House Strand, London WC2R 1LA, UK

Built on the ruins of an ancient palace complex, Somerset House is a hidden gem in the heart of London.

Built around 1550, Old Somerset House was a palace complex used by Edward Seymour (first Duke of Somerset). It was confiscated in 1589, when its construction was not yet completed.

Gradually abandoned by the Crown, the buildings were used for storage, as a residence for visiting dignitaries and as barracks.

The buildings were demolished in 1775 to make way for a new complex, built from 1776 to 1796. Originally the home of the Royal Academy, the premises now serve as the permanent home of the Courtauld Institute and the Courtauld Gallery collection since 1989, as well as the departmental offices of HM Revenue and Customs.
