Eltham Palace & Gardens | Day Trips From Crosskeys Travel Agent
Step inside this striking Art Deco mansion, once a favoured medieval palace and childhood home of Henry VIII. Eltham Palace was transformed and filled with state of the art technology in the 1930’s by eccentric millionaires Stephen and Virginia Courtauld. Discover the couple’s extravagant lifestyle and wander the unusual rooms including the map room where the couple planned their exotic world travels and the centrally-heated sleeping quarters specially-designed for their pet lemur! Look inside a reconstruction of Virginia's walk-in wardrobe to see beautiful period dresses, hats and accessories or why not explore 19 acres of beautiful historic award-winning gardens. Admire stunning herbaceous borders and planting, relax in the Rock Garden with its series of pools and cascades running down to the picturesque moat and cross London's oldest working bridge to 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 and relax.
