Historical Highlights Tours at Somerset House

£8.00 (advance sales)

Historical Highlights Tours return to Somerset House, inviting visitors to discover its varied and surprising history. In a newly upgraded one-hour experience, their guides will take you on a walk-through tour revealing the story of Somerset House over the centuries: from its status as a royal palace, its prime location on the Thames and key role in the naval history of Britain, to being an important cultural centre today.

Explore an unrivalled architectural gem, get exclusive access to the Deadhouse and areas hidden away from public view, and learn more about the fascinating individuals who have lived and worked at Somerset House over the centuries.

Tours are on Tuesdays, Saturdays & some Thursdays at 12:00, 14:00 and 15:45.

Please note this tour takes you to parts of the building that have uneven surfaces, so may not be suitable for everyone. Please email visitor@somersethouse.org.uk to discuss any access requirements.

Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
