Events in London – Friday 4 January

Need some inspiration for 4th January? Whitehall Palace burnt down on this day in 1698. The most substantial part still standing is Banqueting House, which is worth a visit to see the huge Rubens on the ceiling. Queen Mary’s steps are also visible in Horse Guards Avenue, round the back of the Ministry of Defence.
