Banqueting house


Banqueting house

In Tudor and Early Stuart English architecture a banquese houle is a separate building reached through pleasure gardens from the main residence, whose use is purely for entertaining. It may be raised, for additional air or a vista, and it may be richly decorated, but it contains no bedrooms or kitchens. The best known example is the Banqueting House on Whitehall. Its contemporary Italian equivalent was a "casina". Built in 1619, and designed by Inigo Jones, in the palladianism style.
