Somerset House’s Summer Series is set to arrive in London on July 7th, where it will host a variety of extraordinary music events before its close on July 17th.
The artists playing include Everything Everything, Hiatus Kaiyote, James Morrison and St Germain, with many more scheduled over the course of the festival.
Tickets for all of the events are available online, with prices ranging from £29.50 to £35. As well as witnessing some excellent live music, visitors will be able to explore the wonderful Somerset House and its exceptional gardens.
The venue is supported by the Somerset House Trust, which was established in July 1997 to preserve and develop the building. It has since housed a collection of art, gold, silver and mosaics.
As one of the UK’s most prestigious 18th century buildings, Somerset House has developed a strong reputation as a tourist attraction for visitors across the UK and it is easily accessible with entrances at the Victoria Embankment tube station and the Strand.
What is the best way to reach Somerset House?
With rail transport becoming increasingly expensive, it is extremely hard for many people to reach the capital from other areas of the country. Often, delays, cancellations and connections await for people coming into the capital, which is why a coach could be the perfect solution to your travel woes.
Thanks to free Wi-Fi, direct services and comfortable guaranteed seats, going by road to London is easier than ever before. Not only will you be able to relax and not have to worry about connections, but you can focus on planning your trip and look forward to the many delights the city has to offer.
Whether you decide to travel directly to Somerset House or not, the Underground makes it easy to work your way around the capital’s wide variety of attractions. If you’re new to the system, there are plenty of staff around to guide you through the different lines, routes and ticket options.
Should I go to London for the day or a weekend?
For those who have not been before, the sheer variety of attractions across London will be overwhelming. Fitting everything you want to do into one day is a challenge, but it can be accomplished through good planning.
However, if you want to explore the main tourist attractions and more, it is advisable to opt for a full weekend. This way, you can discover stunning areas such as Hyde Park and the flamboyant Camden Town.
Keep an eye out for any other events that may be happening during your visit, too. There are always phenomenal shows running in the West End, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Into The Woods and The Go Between.
