The art deco entrance hall of Eltham Palace.

Entrance Hall

Inside, this circular wood-panelled room, exquisitely picked out in shades of coffee and cream, is a stunning setting for drinks. A pair of curved staircases lead to some first floor rooms whilst French doors lead directly to the terrance beyond, where drinks may be served in fine weather, overlooking the flower gardens.

The warm Italian Drawing Room.

Italian Drawing Room

In burnt orange, ochre and blues, this room - which has its own grand piano - can be used with the Entrance Hall and adjoining Dining Room for drinks receptions. It too has a door out to the terrace.

The Great Hall decorated in the Great Gatsby style.

Medieval Great Hall

Separated from the main house only by a sliding Chinese lacquer screen the contrast between Art Deco and Medieval is stunning. The hall may be used for larger ceremonies, but more usually hosts dining and dancing - it looks wonderful with enhanced lighting. A minstrels' gallery may be used for live music  performances. The room opens directly onto lawns, which parties can use in fine weather.

An archway covered with blue flowers.

The Gardens

Drinks may be served in the gardens in conjunction with events inside the house. In fine weather this space is a great place for guests to mingle amongst the flowerbeds and socialise in a relaxed, ambient setting.
