Banqueting House, London


When you stroll through the streets of London, history surrounds you with every step. For instance, if you walk from Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall through the arch, you will pass beneath the former office of the Duke of Wellington and the window from which the Queen Mother used to watch the annual Trooping the Color.

Cross the street and you will be at Banqueting House, the site where Charles I was executed on January 30, 1649 by Oliver Cromwell’s men on a scaffold built out from a first floor balcony (“first floor” in England means one floor above the ground floor). Turn around and look at the clock above the Horse Guards Building and you will see a black splotch behind the “2,” set there to mark the dark hour of the king’s beheading. Banqueting House is also the only building in Whitehall to survive the Great Fire of 1666. Don’t just bring home stories.

Bring home unforgettable memories.
