It is an impressive large Neoclassical building situated on the south side of the Strand in central London, overlooking the River Thames. During most of the twentieth century there was a fiscal presence in the shape of the Stamp Office and the Tax Office here. Today, the building was reinvigorated as a centre for the visual arts.

    The courtyard of Somerset House was used as a generic St Petersburg square in Goldeneye (1995) where Jack Wade's car breaks down and James Bond assists him while discussing about his mission.
