What happened to Henry VIII’s great Whitehall Palace and what did the early Stuart kings do at the Banqueting House, its last remaining part? Although intended for play and masques, this building is more famous as the place of execution of Kings Charles I. Explore its colourful and turbulent history with Siobhan Clarke and climb to the viewing gallery (not open to the public) for a closer look at the magnificent Rubens ceiling – the only one of his works still in its original location.
