Once a favoured medieval palace and then a Tudor royal residence, Eltham Palace was transformed into a striking Art Deco mansion by eccentric millionaires Stephen and Virginia Courtauld.áHead out into 19 acres of award-winning gardens. 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.

Please note that last entry to Eltham Palace is at 4pm.
