4 January events in London

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.
