Hire Banqueting House as a versatile and inspiring event space that can accommodate up to 500 guests for a standing reception. Banqueting House was created for entertaining in 1622, and offers two main spaces, including the Main Hall and the Undercroft. The Main Hall is spacious enough to accommodate large events yet still appropriate for smaller celebrations, as it is light and quiet room that boasts wonderful acoustics and magnificent pillars soaring toward one of the world's great masterpieces, Ruben's ceiling.

Alternatively, the Under croft is an intimate atmospheric space that offers guests a pleasant complement to the soaring, majestic Main Hall. Once enjoyed as a drinking den by King James I and his riotous, party-loving courtiers, it still serves as a wonderful space for drinks receptions and late-night parties.

The Stuart Kings occasionally used the Undercroft to escape public life. It was often used for gambling during the reign of Charles II. Diarist John Evelyn described one unlucky evening in 1664 where he, as well as 'the King, Queen-Consort and Queen Mother', won "only a trifle".

Fully airconditioned and located on the ground floor, this space is a blank canvas with its white walls and low arches. Often used for pre-dinner drinks receptions or after-show parties.
