Exploring Eltham Palace

Recently re-opened after a major refurbishment in 2015, Eltham Palace is conveniently located between London and the country. It is also a fantastic site to visit during the spring and summer months, when the gardens are in full bloom. The site was formerly a medieval ruin, until it was rescued by Stephen and Virginia Courtauld in 1932. It was transformed into a luxury art-deco palace, with large beautiful rooms fit for entertaining guests. The Courtaulds also restored the gardens at Eltham, which make for great photos for the photography enthusiasts in your party! On a sunny day in front of the palace you can even see sites such as the Shard and the London eye on the horizon, all from a quiet suburb in London.

 

Eltham Palace is a short drive away from London, and can be visited with one of our private driver-guides on a London tour, and combined with nearby sites such as Greenwich.
