Banqueting House is the only remnant of the Palace of Whitehall, where Charles I was executed in 1649. Built for James I and opened in 1622, Banqueting House is one of the earliest examples of English neo-classical architecture and set a precedent that transformed the style of English architecture. Today the House is owned by the Historic Royal Palaces charity.
