Banqueting House

The last remaining building of the historic Palace of Whitehall. Designed by Inigo Jones for James I and completed in 1622, it was originally built for royal banquets, balls, plays and masques. The grandeur of the Main Hall creates a glittering backdrop for any occasion. Follow in the footsteps of kings as you walk up the sweeping stone staircase and gaze upon the remarkable Rubens ceiling commissioned by Charles I.

The beautiful white vaults beneath the Main Hall were a favorite haunt of James I. Today the Undercroft can be used as a grand reception area for pre-dinner drinks or as an intimate venue in its own right.
