New Year new Banqueting House!
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.
Jennifer Walker, Head of Banqueting House said: ‘We are so pleased to be able to offer our clients and visitors a unique experience at the palace while the conservation works are carried out. Not only does the venue look spectacular, we are also able to demonstrate in real time how their contribution supports the incredibly important work that the charity does to maintain these iconic palaces. Adding to this, the new pricing structure is a great way to offer price sensitive clients flexibility when booking with us ’.

Notes to editors
The Banqueting House is the only remaining complete building of Whitehall Palace, the sovereign’s principal residence until 1698 when it was destroyed by fire. Designed by Inigo Jones for James I, the Banqueting House was originally built for occasions of state, plays and masques. The magnificent ceiling paintings by Sir Peter Paul Rubens were commissioned by Charles to celebrate his father’s life, wise government and the divine right of Kings. Ironic, therefore, that Charles would have walked underneath this ceiling moments before his execution.
Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle. We help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built. We raise all our own funds and depend on the support of our visitors, members, donors, sponsors and volunteers. Registered charity number 1068852.
