The Banqueting House is an Inigo Jones masterpiece using the harmonious principles of classical architecture to meet the ancient Roman idea of perfection – an elegantly proportioned double cube – the perfect space.
Commissioned by King James I this architectural gem would later become an artistic marvel, when Charles I added Peter Paul Rubens’ magnificent ceiling paintings to commemorate his father’s long and peaceful reign. The ceiling was one of King Charles I’s last sights before he lost his head when executed on a scaffold outside in 1649. The beauty and scale of this spectacular venue continues to inspire its guests, just as they did for the Kings, Queens and courtiers who have celebrated here since 1622.
