Banqueting House


The Banqueting House is all that remains of Whitehall Palace, the sovereign's principal residence from 1530 until 1698 when it was destroyed by fire. Renowned for Inigo Jones's palladian architecture and its painted ceiling by Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens, the building is also famous for being the scene of Charles I's execution in 1649.
