Eltham Palace and Gardens

We have changed the opening arrangements of our sites to play our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19. Eltham Palace is temporarily closed for the weekend of 16/17 January. Any tickets pre-booked for the closed period will be cancelled and refunds automatically made, so there is no need to contact us. We hope to be able to return to our winter weekend opening of the gardens of Eltham Palace, in line with current Government guidance, from 23/24 January onwards, but this remains under review. We are keeping a selection of sites open for local people to use for exercise during the lockdown period. These are a mixture of free-to-enter and paid sites, and all have plenty of outdoor space for safe social distancing. Visits to paid sites must be booked in advance. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult time.
