Banqueting House

Banqueting House is one of the two remaining parts of the once glorious Palace of Whitehall. Designed by Indigo Jones in classical style,

It is well worth a visit, especially to see the fabulous Rubens ceiling, commissioned by the extravagant Charles I. Chales was later beheaded on the balcony of the Banqueting house at the end of the English Civil War.
