TIME

10am-5pm

LOCATION

Eltham Palace and Gardens 

SUITABLE FOR

Everyone

Experience the exhilarating spectacle of speed and skill as four legendary knights compete for honour and glory in the Grand Medieval Joust. See lances shatter, feel the thunder of hooves and hear the roar of the crowd as reputations are won and lost. Our fearless fighters and their magnificent horses will charge at each other at full speed in an unforgettable display of chivalry and sheer courage. Choose your champion and cheer them on to victory – or console them in defeat.

There'll also be a fabulous display from our talented falconers for you to enjoy.

As well as our Legendary Joust activities, there’s lots more to enjoy at Eltham Palace and Gardens:

  • See the purpose-built heated home of Mah-Jong, the Courtaulds’ beloved pet lemur.
  • Head underground to explore the basement – used as a games room and a bomb shelter during the Blitz.
  • Take the multimedia tour with options for adults and families.
  • Relax in the beautiful glasshouse café overlooking the playground.

With so much to see and do all day long, Eltham Palace's Legendary Joust is a fun-filled, action-packed and great value day out for the whole family.

Don’t miss one of history’s most spectacular sporting contests!
