I thinnk this Gallery is a gem! My last visit in April 2017 ( it was a beautiful , sunny Spring day), gave us such joy to be here, and see all the variety of painters - that it has in the permanent gallery. Gorgeous building, and welcoming helpful woman at the entrance. And the expansive courtyard brings the outside to life. It is a true gem!
Wonderful gallery. We were superbly helped when visiting today by the gentleman that assists with disabled visitors. He couldn’t have been more kind, thank you for making our day! We look forward to visiting again soon.
Free for UK students and very cozy. The art is amazing too if you care about that sort of thing.
Security guerd at the doors was extremely lovely. I had to sit down for a bit and I was watching him. Opened doors to everyone! Wished Happy New Year! Was extremely polite and helpful to everyone entering and exiting. Knew the building and helped everyone with directions. Visited on 2nd January 2018.
For me the admissions were free as they offer free admissions to students!!!! Highly recommended if you are interested in medival art and impressionism! But to be honest if it werent free i have admit it could have been a regrettable visit.
Clearly each exhibition has to be judged on its merits, but in my experience they’re usually pretty good. As their space for their special shows is relatively small, you don’t suffer from ‘museumitis’. Their cafe is also well worth a visit. Usually service is quick and efficient and brownies are delicious! Not that many seats so advise getting there a bit earlier than peak times. Somerset House is a stunning building and worth the visit on its own. Plus there’s often other shows and events on in one part of the building or the other. Celebrated restaurant Spring is there, but have yet to find the special occasion reason to go. Two sets of friends have been and praised it.
A gem in the middle of London. Much quieter than the National Gallery or Tate. But the quality of the paintings is outstanding. My favourite is Gauguin's Nevermore
A hidden gem in London for sure. This gallery hosts some amazing paintings and is a joy to wonder through. It is not overcrowded and you can easily see the whole collection in under 2 hours.
Very enjoyable. Not too busy but some great classic paintings. Can see it all and not get totally lost and frustrated.
Fantastic Art collection whose virtue is quality rather than quantity. Superlative impressionist works! Wonderful location! Superlative works of Rubens, Botticelli, Cranach the Elder, etc. Among things not to miss!
