Nelson Stair

The Nelson Stair was designed by Sir William Chambers and sweeps over six floors in the southern part of Somerset House. Originally called the Navy Staircase, it leads to the Navy Boardroom that hosted meetings that were attended by Lord Nelson once the Navy Board moved to Somerset House in 1789.
