Somerset House, South Building
London WC2R 1LA
Opened to the public in 2000, the once private residence of royalty now functions as a space for exhibits, events, performances and even the Somerset House Ice Rink in the winter. With continuous renovations and improvements to the space, it's an architectural wonder that has even won the Royal Fine Art Commission Trust's Building of the Year Award in 2001.
Visitors can tour the 18th century home, watch the orchestrated fountain show in the courtyard or even take in a bite at the on-site restaurants and bars. For visits during the colder months, be sure to take a loop around the popular ice rink.
