Afternoon Tea in the Main Hall
The Pop Up Afternoon Tea will be served every day from 18th July until 28th August, offering a unique experience for both Londoners and visitors to the capital looking to enjoy a truly English tradition.
Dine in style with Afternoon Tea under the only surviving in-situ ceiling painting of Peter Paul Rubens, the crowning glory of Inigo Jones’s building. The Banqueting House is probably most famous for the execution of King Charles I in 1649, who stepped directly on to the scaffold from an upstairs window, specially removed for the occasion.
Afternoon Tea costs £30.50 per person including the Palace entrance fee.
