What people are saying:

Spending a couple of days in London, we decided to visit the Banqueting House on Saturday morning, after a gap of many years since we last enjoyed the building. Spectacular architecture by Inigo Jones and an awe inspiring ceiling by Rubens. Make sure you use the excellent free audio guide which brings the whole history of the building to life. Enjoy viewing the ceiling either via the handily placed mirror for the less able or for the more agile by lying back on the flexible bean bag style seating. Looking across Whitehall to the crowds jostling for the perfect selfie with the Horse Guards, all in the wind and rain, it seemed a shame that more were not enjoying this great building which has played such a big part in British history. The staff were very welcoming and helpful.
