Plan your visit

Following the government’s confirmation that galleries can re-open in July, we are finalising a plan to open to the public with our exhibition Mushrooms: The Art, Design and Future of Fungi and the magnificent outdoor fountain courtyard in mid-July.

We have a plan that meets all current COVID-19 secure guidelines, which may have to be revised, as we are expecting more detailed government guidance soon. We will update our website and social media channels with confirmed re-opening dates when we are in a position to do so.  

As ever, the health of all our visitors, staff, residents creative community remains our priority.  We look forward to welcoming you back safely, soon.

Admission to Somerset House is free, but you’ll need to buy a ticket for some exhibitions and events.  

The fountains in The Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court are operational during the spring and summer.
