Banqueting House

The Banqueting House is located off of Whitehall. It does not really stand out when you are walking down the street but it an impressive building. It has a great video to watch about the use and if you are a Historic Royal Palaces member you get a free audioguide to help you look at the hall.

The Banqueting House had previous buildings here for the same purpose but the current one was a built in 1636 by Indigo Jones. The canvasses that cover the ceiling were painted by Sir Peter Paul Rubens. Charles I was also beheaded here.

It is a very lovely place, don't make it destination but do stop in if you are in the area.

All the Best!
