What happened to Henry VIII’s great Whitehall Palace? What did the early Stuart kings do here, at the last remaining part of the palace - the Banqueting House?

While it was intended for play and masques, this building is more famous as the place of execution of Kings Charles I. Explore its colourful and turbulent history with Siobhan Clarke and climb to the viewing gallery (not open to the public) for a closer look at the magnificent Rubens ceiling – the only one of his works still in its original location
