Embankment Galleries

Embankment Galleries

Originally a barrel vaulted bargehouse linked directly to the Thames, the Embankment Galleries are now our most modern and adaptable events space. Spread over the ground floor and mezzanine level of the South Wing, this network of rooms have been reinvented as home to Somerset House’s most celebrated exhibitions, and host annual exhibitions such as Photo London and the London Design Biennale, as well as one-off shows curated by Somerset House’s in-house team.

The Embankment Galleries are one of our more exclusive spaces, rarely available for private hire. The mezzanine level is an impressive space for large scale dinners and receptions, while the entire gallery spaces offer a spectacular setting for press days and conferences.

Dramatic steel and glass feature staircases, hardstone flooring and bright feature walls introduce a contemporary and urban element to this historic space. Offering the flexibility of a blank canvas space, the Embankment Galleries can be readily transformed and are also the perfect backdrop for catwalk show and fashion presentations.
