Banqueting House

Banqueting House is a London “must see” and is one of the earliest examples of Palladian design in the country, marking the start of a revolution in British architecture. See stunning ceiling paintings by Rubens and enjoy a wealth of history by taking an audio tour.
Originally the property of the Archbishops of York, the Banqueting House was used to provide entertainment for King Charles I, and was later the scene of his execution at the end of the English Civil War.
