Whether you’re planning an extravagant event or an intimate affair, the Banqueting House has the perfect space for you. With top quality service and mesmerising surroundings, the house provides a stunning backdrop for your unforgettable day.




The ceiling by Peter Paul Rubens, is something to behold and the remarkable history of the building very interesting. Could do with the non original bland walls being restored.

A hidden gem. The last remaining part of the old palace of Whitehall which burned to the ground more than 300 years ago. A stunning Neo-classical/Baroque interior and an incredible history make this well worth a visit.

Absolutely under rated place in London. Located very close to the Churchill war rooms, this stunning venue is a piece of history! The ceiling painted by Rubens is gorgeous and elaborate. Lots of seating space which you can look at all the stunning detailing...

The main Banqueting Hall is still used for functions today. I can sum up my opinion of this room in one word - WOW! The room is very large with a throne at the far end but the most spectacular part of this very high room is the Ruben's ceiling - it is...

We were married at Banqueting House in London, one of a few historic Royal Palaces in the city. The whole House is steeped in history and adorned with fine art. The ceremony itself was also held at Banqueting House and attended by some 290 friends and...

We had the pleasure of having a wedding at the Banqueting House. We don't know what we loved more about the Main Hall... It was impossible to choose a favourite between the spectacular ceiling painted by Sir Peter Paul Rubens or the lovely flowers on...

It really is a very impressive venue for anyone looking to stage a high-profile event but - as the main Hall is spacious - it's essential to secure a good turnout!

The Banqueting Hall provided a great place for dinner and dancing, as well as the daybeds for guests to relax on. The high ceilings meant we could bring in impressively tall trees into the venue, once again tying in with the theme of Arabian Nights. ...

The Great Hall was filled with masses of blossom, creating the most romantic of settings for our special day.
