Banqueting House is the kind of place that I'd never normally bother visiting if I didn't have to do it for this blog, but once I got there I was happy I went. For an attraction that has only got two rooms (literally), it's pretty decent.
I don't normally get bowled over when I see a bit of art, but this room is huge. It is absolutely massive, it's probably about four or five times the height of a normal room, and right at the far end is the king's throne hung over by a big red canopy. When you look up at the Rubens on the roof it really is impressive.
