    We were booked on a tour and the guide was superb with an amazing knowledge of history. Such a beautiful room with Peter Paul Rubens' wonderful ceiling paintings. This was the last surviving building left of Whitehall Palace and where Charles I stepped out onto the scaffold to be beheaded.

    Awesome guides on the tour - probably the first time I actually enjoyed hearing about monarch history! Tickets sell quickly so make sure to get yours in advance.

    Well preserved, well maintained place which has some amazing artwork adorning the ceiling which apparently was brought all the way from Belgium. One typically would spend about an hour here. There is a documentary to view first, enlightening people of the history behind this place along with an audio guide which is provided free of charge with the ticket. Entry fee applicable. Credit cards accepted but not Amex.

    Very interesting building and ceiling specifically. The building must have been impressive however they don’t allow access to many places which they might consider in the future? Either way it’s worth visiting this space especially since it’s so central

    Had no idea about this place but when I purchased the Historic Palace Membership for Hampton’s Court, it was one of the six Palaces that I could visit for free with my membership. I highly recommend buying the membership if you are planning on doing the Tower of London/Hampton’s Court/Kensington Palace since they membership cost as much as an entry to two Palaces. You also receive special membership access to after hours. It’s very small, just one big room but laying on bean bags while watching a gorgeous ceiling and listening to history of the room and palace is a nice way to spend a couple of hours.
