Banqueting House

As you gather among family and friends to celebrate and begin a new life together, the Banqueting House's timeless majesty offers a powerful reminder of precious links to the past.

If you're after a spectacular wedding, then enter the elegant entry hall and follow the grand staircase leading to the majesty of the Main Hall, with its glorious painted ceiling, magnificent pillars and glittering chandeliers. For a more intimate reception, the wonderfully atmospheric Undercroft is a charming vaulted space which radiates with good cheer and joyous bustle.

Banqueting House guarantees first-class service and an unforgettable backdrop for your very special occasion.
