The Banqueting House is probably most famous for one real life drama, the execution of Charles I which took place in 1649. One of Charles’s last sights as he walked through the Banqueting House to his death was the magnificent ceiling paintings by Peter Paul Rubens painted between 1630 - 4. These nine ceiling paintings are unique and unlike most Ruben paintings are in their original location and not in art galleries around the world.
