iVisit.... Eltham Palace

  • Eltham Palace Court Yard, Eltham, Greenwich London, SE9 5QE United Kingdom (map)

Experience the decade of decadence at Eltham Palace, as you are transported back to the 1930s (just in time for cocktail hour…). Created for millionaires Stephen and Virginia Courtauld, Eltham Palace is part showpiece of Art Deco design and 1930s cutting-edge technology, and part medieval royal palace. Bring your family and make yourself at home, try on clothes, play games and listen to music, as a guest of the Courtaulds.

After a £1.7 million project Eltham Palace reopened on 3 April 2015 with five new rooms for you to enjoy.

Admire the stunning domed entrance hall at Eltham Palace, where prestigious guests gathered for glamorous cocktail parties. Socialites and politicians, royals and artists all enjoyed hospitality here. This eye-catching room is a mix of Art Deco and cutting-edge Swedish design.

Saved from decline by the Courtaulds', their lavish home is one of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture and design surviving in Britain today. Explore some of the collection highlights that you can see at Eltham Palace.

The marvellous panelled dining room and luxurious golden bathroom are just two of the other highlights you can enjoy.
