Banqueting House

The Banqueting House is the only remaining complete building of Whitehall Palace, the sovereign's principal residence from 1530 until 1698 when it was destroyed by fire. Designed by Inigo Jones for James I (1603-25) and completed in 1622, the Banqueting House was originally built for occasions of state, plays and masques. The magnificent ceiling paintings by Sir Peter Paul Rubens, for which the building is renowned, were commissioned by James I's son, Charles I (1625-49) to celebrate his father's life and wise government and installed by 1636.
