Part of the Museums at Night festival. Created in 1622 by Inigo Jones, the Banqueting House was intended for the splendour and exuberance of court masques, but is most famous for a real life drama: the execution of Charles I, which took place here in 1649.
Join us on Friday 17 May 2013 for Museums at Night and enjoy a visit to this architectural masterpiece, and home to the magnificent Rubens ceiling.
Open until 10pm, you will be able to enjoy your visit with a drink in hand from our licensed bar, have a listen to our complimentary audio guide, and glean more information from our knowledgeable team.
