Eltham Palace & Gardens

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, it’s among the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in England. The stunning entrance hall, marvellous panelled dining room, luxurious bathroom, and the magnificent medieval Great Hall, are just some of the highlights.

And with its beautiful gardens, and plenty of places for a picnic, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Full of wonderful surprises, Eltham Palace is the perfect choice for a great day out in South London.


Look out for...

  • The elegant Art Deco entrance hall
  • The family lemur's sleeping quarters
