Eltham Palace

Must-see Art Deco Architecture and some beautiful gardens

Location: Court Yard, Eltham, Greenwich, SE9 5QE

Description: Immerse yourself in 1930s Art Deco decadence at 'Eltham Palace', one of the most enchanting visitor attractions in London.

Built by the wealthy Courtauld family next to the remains of Eltham Palace, childhood home of Henry VIII, it's among the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in England.

The stunning entrance hall, marvellous panelled dining room, luxurious bathroom, and the magnificent medieval Great Hall, are just some of the highlights.

And with its beautiful gardens, and plenty of places for a picnic, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

Eltham Palace was a royal residence from the 14th to 16th Century. In 1933 Sir Stephen and Lady Courtauld gained the property's lease and began renovating the property in the glamorous Art Deco style of the time, ensuring this attraction's blend of medieval history and Edwardian chic.

The highlights of Eltham Palace and Gardens include the 19 acres of stunning gardens, including the rockery and sunken rose garden; the Great Hall, the childhood home of Henry VIII; the 1930s home movie of the Courtaulds; the 'ocean liner' entrance hall; and the sumptuous bedrooms.
