The Banqueting House - This unrivalled piece of architecture was added to the palace of Whitehall by James I. after the design of Inigo Jones. This structure consists chiefly of a royal chapel, the cieling of which was painted by Peter Paul Rubens; there is divine service every day at eleven o’clock, when any person may have admittance. It was from this pavilion (several of whose windows are walled up) that king Charles passed to go to the scaffold. Behind the building is a statue of James II. upon a pedestal, which is esteemed to be one of the finest of its kind in England.
