The banqueting house was built for a king’s banquets but used for his execution. It is all that remains of Whitehall Palace and the rooms are adorned with glorious paintings that were meant to remind us that kings were appointed by God just at the time that they were being shown to be mere mortals. It is well worth a visit when you are near Trafalgar Square
