Join us for a visit to Eltham Palace including a private, guided tour for the Kenric group. Eltham is a unique marriage between a medieval and Tudor palace and a 1930s millionaire’s mansion. From the 14th to the 16th century it was an important royal palace, where monarchs often stayed and hunted in the surrounding parks.
After centuries of neglect, Eltham was leased to Stephen and Virginia Courtauld in 1933, who built an up-to-the-minute house here that incorporated the great hall. The result was a masterpiece of 20th-century design.
Explore 19 acres of beautiful gardens with new interpretation throughout. Admire the herbaceous border designed by award-winning garden designer Isabelle Van Groeningen. Take time to wander around the Rock Garden with its series of pools and cascades running down to the moat.
Cross the moat on London’s oldest working bridge, and smell the roses in the sunken rose garden. Our visit will include a 1.5 hour private guided tour plus unlimited time to explore the gardens and the palace.
