Banqueting House

The Banqueting House is the only remaining complete building of Whitehall Palace, the sovereign’s principal residence until 1698 when it was destroyed by fire.

Designed by Inigo Jones for James I, the Banqueting House was originally built for occasions of state, plays and masques. The magnificent ceiling paintings by Sir Peter Paul Rubens were commissioned by King Charles I to celebrate his father’s life, wise government and the divine right of Kings and is the only in-situ ceiling painting by Rubens in the world.

Set in the heart of Westminster, this venue has one of the capital’s largest capacities for upscale events and offers guests a spectacular setting for drinks receptions up to 500 and seated dinners for 380.
