The Queen’s House, built in the 17th century by Inigo Jones, was the first wholly classical building of its kind in England. Queen Anne, wife of James I, hosted such sumptuous parties that it became known as the ‘House of Delight’.
It now provides the perfect venue for civil marriage ceremonies and wedding receptions.
