We are pleased to be hosting The Eltham Palace Wedding Showcase on Thursday 2nd October, 5pm - 9pm. Please note that Eltham Palace will be closing at 3pm for set up - we apologise for any inconvenience.

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.
