Autumnal gardens at Eltham Palace

Book Tickets Online


Explore 19 acres of award-winning gardens and step inside the striking art deco mansion.

Once a favoured medieval palace and then a Tudor royal residence, in the 1930s Eltham Palace was transformed by eccentric millionaires Stephen and Virginia Courtauld. Get a taste of the Courtaulds’ extravagant lifestyle as you explore their unusual home, try on a range of period costumes, follow the family trail and admire the magnificent medieval great hall.

There’s a quirky mix of medieval and modern in the gardens too. Admire stunning herbaceous borders, walk through formal rose gardens and relax in the Rock Garden, with its pools and cascades running down to the moat. Cross London's oldest working bridge and go on an adventure in the playground inspired by the Courtaulds’ love of travel.

With so much to see and do, Eltham Palace is a great value day out for the whole family – Book Now.
