On this site once stood the Palace of Westminster, only the Banqueting House survives the rest having been destroyed by fire in 1698. The building is on three floors, the lower areas being store rooms, above is the double height banqueting hall with a secondary floor above. The architecture has successfully created an aura of splendour and importance, on arrival the visitor will be awed by the paintings of Peter Paul Rubens on the ceiling inside the main hall -.Charles 1st  executed here 5 minutes Charing Cross tube
