Banqueting House, London
Charing Cross, Westminster
Banqueting House, by Inigo Jones, was the first structure to be built in connection with James I's rebuilding of Whitehall. Opened in 1608, it replaced a temporary structure of wood and canvas. Banqueting House is divided into two levels: the lower floor is for less formal functions and the upper is reserved for more lavish affairs.
