Guided tour of house and free visit to gardens

Eltham is an unique marriage between a medieval and Tudor palace and a 1930s millionaire’s mansion. From the 14th to the 16th centuries 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 that incorporated the great hall, creating a masterpiece of 20th century art deco design.

Prior booking is required and a charge is made.
