  • Overview

    Be the guest of King Henry VIII himself at a magnificent Medieval Banquet party.

    Sit down in the flickering torch-light to a sumptuous feast in the atmosphere of Merrie Olde England. The regal repast will be served by comely wenches, who'll provide you with generous amounts of wine and beer. Enjoy the pageantry that will make your evening even more delightful – a sword fight, strolling players, Tudor style performers and the medieval songs and dancing.

    The Medieval Banquet is situated at St. Katharine Docks. This was one of London’s busiest docks and has a rich and turbulent history. It has seen the Great Plague, the Great Fire of London and suffered heavy bomb damage during World War II.

    Different banqueting options are available, covering weekdays, week-ends and Christmas. Come for lunch or enjoy the King’s hospitality over dinner. Come as a couple, a family, with friends or with colleagues. This is a fun-filled experience everyone will love.

    Ending Point

    The experience ends at the venue


    There are three fantastic options for the ever- popular attraction The Medieval Banquet, London. These are:

    The Medieval Banquets Dinner
    The Midday Feast Christmas Lunch
    The Nightfall Banquet Christmas Dinner

    The splendid setting for your Banquet is historic Ivory House, in a picturesque location in St Katharine Docks, built in the 16th Century as a safe harbour for merchant vessels.

    The vaulted cellars of Ivory House, where King Henry commands his banquets to be held, were once a repository for goods brought back by sailing ships. These included teas, wine, wool, sugar and, as the name suggests, ivory.

    Step back in history as you enter the atmospheric Olde Englande setting. Re-live Henry VIII’s era as you sit back and relax by flickering torchlight in the Banqueting Hall.

    Let your imagination run wild as you are invited to watch fighting knights and strolling players singing medieval ballads. Enjoy the gastronomic delight of a traditional succulent English four-course meal, served by the finest wenches in the land – while taking advantage of the generous quantities of wine and beer included in the price.

    During your meal, enjoy the entertainment as the main Royal Court show begins. Feel the excitement as your host, Henry VIII, welcomes you and introduces a cast of colourful characters from England’s past. From frolicking court jesters and cunning magicians to the incredible strongman, the amazing array of entertainers provides a rollicking display.

    Lose yourself in the evening’s celebrations. Whether you dance with the wenches, sing along, join the medieval revelry or sit back and watch the show, it is sure to be a fun-filled night for everyone.

    This super-value option lets one child go free (under 4 years) for every paying adult in the party. The option is available with Medieval Banquets Dinner only.

    The revelry lasts for around 4 hours and includes a disco.

    The Midday Feast Christmas Lunch: The revelry lasts around 4 hours and includes a disco.
