Portico Rooms, Dining, Somerset House


You can host private lunches and dinners in some of Somerset House’s finest spaces.

Working closely with many of London’s leading catering companies and a trusted roster of florists, musicians and production companies, we’ve staged private meals for clients as diverse as global banking organisations and premier event and production agencies.

Why not bring together two or more spaces for a single event. For example, a reception in the Portico Rooms followed by dinner in Seamen’s Hall.

With beautiful views of Southbank and the Edmond J. Safra Courtyard, the Portico Rooms offer the perfect setting for dinner.

Lancaster Room (capacity 110)

The Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court (capacity 550)
