About the partner

The Banqueting House is the only complete surviving building of Whitehall Palace, the hall was used for grand royal occasions and events. Gawk at the ceiling, the only surviving in-situ ceiling painting by Sir Peter Paul Rubens, one of Charles I’s last sights before he lost his head. The King was executed outside in 1649. Banqueting House is a quiet and calm refuge from bustling central London, just outside the doors.
