About the Event
The Banqueting House at Whitehall Palace was designed by Inigo Jones in 1622. This classical building is infamous as the execution site of King Charles I. The hall survived the fire that destroyed Henry VIII’s great Whitehall Palace in 1698 and its magnificent painted ceiling, by Peter Paul Rubens, is the only one in the world still in its original setting.
Delivered by Siobhan Clarke BA Hons who has worked for Historic Royal Palaces for 20 years and is based at Hampton Court Palace, where she trained as a Costumed Interpreter before becoming an HRP Guide Lecturer.
