Somerset House, London


This is a photo of Somerset House, a large building situated on the south side of the Strand in central London, overlooking the River Thames, just east of Waterloo Bridge. The central block of the Neoclassical building, the outstanding project of the archistect Sir William Chambers, dates from 1776–96. It was extended by classical Victorian wings to north and south.
