Menus & Brochures
The Banqueting House is part of the Historic Royal Palaces. This lavish venue is perfect for a special occasion. The Main Hall was designed by Inigo Jones for James I. The Main Hall was intended for entertaining in 1622 and to this day is a stunning space for events. With incredible acoustics, beautiful pillars and Reuben’s ceiling, a masterpiece in its own right, this space is ideal for large receptions, awards ceremonies and dinners or more intimate personal celebrations. The Undercroft is a vaulted space which complements the Main Hall. Formerly used as a private drinking den by James I and his courtiers, this space is suitable for drinks receptions and evening parties.
2015 is an exciting year for the Banqueting House which will see the exterior restored to its former glory and a new lighting system installed.
During this period, we have a dramatic hoarding in place giving guests a sneak peek of the world famous Peter Paul Rubens ceiling inside. We have also installed a stunning lighting system throughout the interior giving clients a range of colours and settings to choose from to enhance the look and feel of their event.
If this wasn’t enough, Banqueting House has also launched a new variable pricing structure as of January 2015. The three tier pricing structure offers flexibility in selecting a day or month that is cost effective for our clients. Hire fees are as low as £9,450+vat for exclusive hire of this stunning 500 capacity venue.
