Nelson in Somerset

Admiral Nelson takes a stroll on clear mornings

Location: Somerset House, Strand, WC2R 1LA

Description: Somerset House overlooks the River Thames, just east of Waterloo Bridge. The central block of the Neoclassical building, the outstanding project of the architect Sir William Chambers, dates from 1776 - 96. It was extended by classical Victorian wings to the north and south.

And not only is it a simply splendid place to visit - it also has a Battle of Trafalgar connection... Indeed, on clear calm mornings, Admiral Nelson - famous for his participation in the Napoleonic Wars in the late 1700s - can be seen walking across the quadrangle towards the old Admiralty Office.
