1. A historic black tie Christmas party venue: Banqueting House, London
Many places are called historic, but few truly are. Banqueting House, the last remaining building from the Palace of Whitehall, is one of them.
With its intricate chandeliers, high ceilings flanked by pillars, and of course, the pièce de résistance – the Charles I commissioned art painted across the ceiling by Peter Paul Rubens, this venue seems like the right place to revel in the season’s festivities like royalty.
Banqueting House was quite literally built for entertaining, so in the spirit of its original design, let the entertainment live on, with 380 guests for a regal Christmas party that you won’t soon forget.
