St. Mark's Hall

Recommended Posts

Saint Mark Hall

Saint Mark Hall is the residence at Whitehall for guests of the King that do not merit (via patronage of relation) an apartment in the Palace itself. From here it is an easy walk to the Privy Garden.

Entering the doors to Saint Marks Hall one steps upon an intricately worked parquet floor. Ahead a wide staircase ascends into the upper levels of the buildings, at it's foot a liveried servant stands to assist those that might need it, running small errands, such a notifying an occupant that they have a visitor.

Ground level Reception Room

To the right, through a wide arched entrance draped with dark green curtains, a drawing room where ladies or gentlemen await each other - for it is not seemly to call upon the opposite sex in their chambers directly.

Windows from the drawing room look out upon a small rose garden, and in the warmer months are left ajar during the day allowing the sweet fragrance of their blooms to enter the room. Several groupings of chairs are laid out, again in highly polished mahogany, yet all in view of those passing through the lobby.

 

If you want to select a room please check below for availability.
