Our Enchanted series returns to Eltham Palace, 5 - 22 December, with some charming new elements for 2019.

Make the most of winter evenings with an enchanting experience of light, colour and sound as our grounds are transformed into an illuminated world.

Follow our charming trail as you step through tunnels and pathways of twinkling lights and marvel as the gardens burst to life in remarkable, unexpected ways. Uncover magical secrets hidden deep within our grounds, including dancing fairies and our extraordinary talking trees.

Brighten up the Palace’s historic walls with our new interactive colour display and ring the bells of our new Chime Time installation to play a favourite seasonal tune. Strike your best pose as you step through arches of sparkly lights for the perfect wintery photos.

Admire our ancient moat as it comes to life with fountains that rise and fall to beguiling music and lose yourself in a captivating miniature maze of light. Wander along our mirror ball alley as they shimmer in the moonlight and see beams of light criss-crossing through the night sky.

Then try your luck at our fairground rides and games, enjoy warming mulled wine and tempting mince pies and browse for Christmas gifts in our shop. There will also be a selection of delicious halloumi burgers, scrumptious steak burgers, veggie chilli nachos, festive traybakes and hot chocolate.*

Grab the winter woollies, your family and friends and revel in the most enchanting event of the year. Remember to book early to avoid missing out. 

*Please note that fairground rides, games and food and drink are available at a small additional cost.
