You are able to spend as much time as you like within the Banqueting House during opening hours, however we recommend you schedule approximately 45 minutes for your visit. Banqueting House is a popular venue for events and weddings so is sometimes subject to earlier closures. The audio tour lasts approximately 30 minutes.
It is unlikely you will be required to queue during your visit. The seats/beanbags and mirrors for the Rubens ceiling are available in the Banqueting Hall on a first-come first-served basis and are rarely all in use. Please be patient if they are all occupied upon your arrival.
