About this room

Somerset House was the nerve centre of the nation’s naval power for almost a century from 1789, and its maritime connections can still be sensed in the stately elegance of this room.

Linking the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court and the River Terrace, flooded by natural light from both, The Seamen’s Hall combines the exuberance of Corinthian columns with the restraint of a black and white marble floor.

It offers an air of expansive elegance for evening entertaining with the ability for guests to enjoy al fresco entertaining: from The Seamen’s Hall guests can wander onto the River Terrace, drinking in the view of the Thames that first caught Canaletto’s eye.
