Banqueting House and Spencer House
Sunday 24 February 2019

A winter Sunday outing to London has become an established part of our visit programme.  In February we will visit Banqueting House and Spencer House.  Marvel at Sir Peter Paul Rubens' ceiling in its original setting of Inigo Jones' spectacular Banqueting House.    And the many state rooms at Spencer House wait to greet us.  In 1772 the celebrated writer, Arthur  Young, said of Spencer House:
 
‘I know not a more beautiful piece of architecture… All in richness, elegance, and taste, superior to any house I have seen’.
