Banqueting House

To finish out our London Pass at the end of one week, we went to the Banqueting House. Here’s the description from the Pass website:

Designed by Inigo Jones for King James I and completed in 1622, The Banqueting House is the only complete surviving building of Whitehall Palace, the sovereign’s principal residence from 1530 until 1698 when it was destroyed by fire. It was also the site of King Charles I execution in 1649.

We watched an introductory documentary and then were able to explore around the main large room and listen to an audio guide explaining the history and different architecture and artwork.
