The Lancaster Room and the River Rooms, located in the New Wing, are unlike any other venue at Somerset House. Stunning views over the Thames and original features including dramatic pillars and high ceilings are contrasted against an aesthetically raw finish, with exposed floor boards adding a contemporary edge. With its own private entrance, the Lancaster Room is particularly popular as a space for immersive and experiential events, product launches, fashion shows and photo shoots.
The River Rooms are a versatile suite of rooms situated in the New Wing, with a creative and raw aesthetic. These interlinking, open plan rooms retain faint touches from their former tenants and these are highlighted by the custom-built lighting track in place. This look is complete with dramatic original fireplaces and exposed brick archways, making the River Rooms perfectly suited for fashion events, exhibitions and product launches.
