Travel Tuesday: Somerset House


One of my favourite places in London is Somerset House; beautiful building, wonderful exhibitions, tasty food and it's the main location for London Fashion Week. Plus it has really fun water fountains to play in! 

If you go to Somerset house then a visit to Tom's Deli is a must. They have such a great selection of sandwiches and some of the best cakes ever. I had a piece of the orange madeira cake which was so good!

When I went there were two free exhibitions. One was called Return of the Rudeboy which I will write about in another post. The other was an art film poster exhibition.













Have you ever been to Somerset House?

  4. I love the ET poster! If you love Somerset house I totally recommend you book in to go ice-skating there this Christmas. The skate rink is always gorgeous and you can buy hot chocolate or mulled wine to warm up with afterwards :)

    1. I have seen photos of Somerset house at Christmas, it always looks so magical! I'm not great at ice-skating but would definitely be keen on the hot chocolate or mulled wine!
