Eltham Palace & Gardens - inc Deal pick-up

alternative dates available



Eltham Palace & Gardens - inc Deal pick-up 19, July, 2017

Immerse yourself in 1930s Art Deco decadence at Eltham Palace, one of the most enchanting visitor attractions in London. Built by the wealthy Courtauld family next to the remains of Eltham Palace, childhood home of Henry VIII.

Admire the stunning domed entrance hall at Eltham Palace, where prestigious guests gathered for glamorous cocktail parties. Socialites and politicians, royals and artists all enjoyed hospitality here. This eye-catching room is a mix of Art Deco and cutting-edge Swedish design. The marvellous panelled dining room and luxurious golden bathroom are just two of the other highlights you can enjoy.

Take just a few steps and travel back in time from Art Deco modernity to a medieval masterpiece. Gaze out from the minstrels' gallery across the magnificent great hall, and admire the glorious hammer-beam roof built for Edward IV five hundred years ago.

First recorded in the Domesday book, Eltham estate was presented to King Edward II in 1305. It developed into one of the most favoured royal palace with 1,000 acres of deer park on its doorstep. Henry VIII spent many childhood years here, but his daughter Elizabeth I preferred the location at Greenwich, and Eltham Palace slowly fell into decline.

Explore 19 acres of beautiful gardens with new interpretation throughout. Admire the herbaceous border designed by award-winning garden designer Isabelle Van Groeningen. Take time to wander around the Rock Garden with its series of pools and cascades running down to the moat. Cross the moat on London's oldest working bridge, and smell the roses in the sunken rose garden. Virginia had a passion for roses, and even had a red rose named after her. Stephen was also a keen gardener and won several Royal Horticultural prizes for the orchids he grew in the glasshouses at Eltham.
