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.
Eltham Palace is undergoing a major works programme over the winter. The house will be closed during the works but we are still opening the gardens to visitors on Sundays throughout winter. The house will reopen in the Spring of 2014 with a new under-floor heating system in the house. In the greater grounds you will find a new play area, sheltered seating and interpretation in the tennis pavilion and an extension to the carparking.
