Wonderful in every way: one of the world’s best art collections in a beautiful museum. The Impressionist paintings are breathtaking; the earlier works deserve better lighting. But if you love art, you must go to the Courtauld.

The weather was quite cold and gloomy during my trip, so I indulged in playing around on my iPad to see what was nearby. Well, less than 1/2 mile away was the Somerset House, so headed over there. But what caught me was The Courtauld...More

£8 per adult, less for seniors and children. Check if there are any offers on line etc we were using British Rail to and from London and you can get 2 for 1 on entry but you need to apply in advance and download a voucher.
