Eltham is a unique combination between a medieval palace and a 1930s millionaire’s mansion. Between the 14th and 16th centuries Eltham was a royal residence. After years of neglect it was leased to Stephen and Virginia Courtauld in 1933, who built a stylish house that incorporated the great hall originally built for Edward IV 500 years ago. Visit Art Deco rooms to see how the glamorous Courtauld's lived, including the map room for planning foreign excursions and a replica walk-in wardrobe. Multimedia guides are available and you can choose from an adult tour, family tour, and BSL and audio-described versions.
The palace is surrounded by 19 acres of gardens including a rock garden sloping down to the moat, a medieval bridge and a sunken rose garden. There is also a visitor centre, a gift shop, a cafe and an outdoor play area with an 'around the world theme'.
Eltham Palace and Gardens is half a mile from Mottingham railway station and there is a large car park signposted just off Court Road.
