Eltham Palace surrounded by the beautiful gardens and moat.

Book Tickets Online


Once a favoured medieval palace and then royal Tudor residence, Eltham Palace was transformed into a striking art deco mansion by millionaires Stephen and Virginia Courtauld. Your groups can see how they incorporated historic features of the ancient palace and enter into their fashionable world by exploring their eccentric ultra-modern 1930s home, set in 19 acres of award-winning gardens.

The intriguing mix of historical features continues in the captivating grounds. Admire stunning herbaceous borders and planting and relax in the Rock Garden with its series of pools and cascades running down to the picturesque moat. Cross London's oldest working bridge and admire views of the house from the lawn. With plenty of wide open spaces, it's the perfect place to take in the fresh air, relax and play.

Eltham Palace and Gardens provides great value with a 15% discount for groups of 11 or more visitors paying together. They also offer free entry for coach drivers and tour leaders.
