Whether you’d like a spectacular wedding or an intimate reception, the Banqueting House guarantees first-class service and an unforgettable backdrop for your very special occasion.

Main Hall

Specially created for entertaining in 1622, the Banqueting House is truly a sight to behold. Your families and guests arrive via the elegant entry hall, and follow in the footsteps of kings and queens, climbing the grand staircase to the majesty of the Main Hall. Here magnificent pillar and glittering chandeliers will draw guests’ gazes toward one of the world’s great masterpieces: Sir Peter Paul Rubens’s glorious painted ceiling.

The Undercroft

Wonderfully atmospheric, the Undercroft is where Stuart kings once retreated from public life.

Today, this intimacy – once favoured by England’s monarchs – makes it a special space for an unforgettable evening of dining, dancing and celebration. This charming, vaulted space will radiate with good cheer and joyous bustle as your family and friends gather to celebrate and offer congratulations.
