Gorgeous and impressive collection with lots of works even the casual viewer will recognize. Large enough to be well worth the trip but small enough to do as a side trip or in an hour or so drop by.

I got the London Pass for the first time and stumbled onto this delightful museum. This is truly a first class collection of art spanning the eras housed in a gorgeous little building.

If you love art, this is worth the entry fee. The building is beautiful and the collection is stunning. Curated very well. I could walk around and around for hours.

We have been to London many times but never to Somerset House, where the Courtauld Gallery is housed. This gallery was a real treat, with a beautiful collection of Impressionist paintings. If you enjoy art, you shouldn't miss a visit here.

We only had a few hours so we opted for the Courtauld rather than the Tate Britain or National Gallery. Unlike the other museums we visited, they were pretty direct about requiring an admission fee for adults (with reduced fees for seniors, the disabled, etc.)...More
