Eltham Palace

  • Aug 10, 2014 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come along on Sunday 10th August to visit Eltham Palace.

About the palace

Eltham Palace is one of the few important medieval royal palaces in England to survive with substantial remains intact. Initially a moated manor house with vast parkland, it was acquired by the future Edward II in 1305 who subsequently passed it on to his queen, Isabella.

Under Edward IV significant changes were made, most notably the addition of the Great Hall in the 1470s which is still visible today. Henry VIII was the last monarch to spend substantial amounts of money or time at Eltham.

The interior of the palace is a mixture of medieval and Art Deco decadence. 

The stunning entrance hall, marvellous panelled dining room, luxurious bathroom, and the magnificent medieval Great Hall, are just some of the highlights.  It also has fantastic gardens to immerse yourself in.



Entry cost is £10.20 per person, unless you are an English Heritage member, where it is free.

The palace is at 10 minute walk from the station.  To get to Eltham, you will need to get an overground train from Charing Cross (takes 26 mins), it's in zone 4.  Trains depart at 12:20, 12:39, 12:50 and 13:09.


If you can't see us outside the station, please call.


Look out for the group sign -

Hope to see you there!

    Stunning location, and interesting company (though it was almost a surprise that Poirot wasn't there to join us). Thanks for arranging this Robert.

    An oasis in South East London, loved the palace and that you could walk from a medieval hall straight into an art deco living room! Amazing gardens as well.

    Hi Robert, sounds like I made the wrong decision not to come along so I'm wondering - is there a chance you might arrange another meetup at Eltham ?

    • Nicole

      Thanks for letting us know Robert, although as I was planning on bringing my mum (who's in a wheelchair) I've decided to give it a miss - it might be better for her that way. Pity, looks great and I'd have liked to come.

      August 10, 2014

    In case it impacts on anyone, on Sunday 10 August, there will be significant impact to travel in London and Surrey as a result of the annual Prudential RideLondon weekend festival of cycling. Certain east, central and southwest London and Surrey roads will be closed to traffic. The route runs between Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford and The Mall, via the City of London, over Chiswick Bridge towards Richmond Park, Kingston, Walton, Weybridge, Surrey Hills, Dorking, Leatherhead, Esher, Wimbledon and Putney.

    Trains and tubes are running normally, assuming you can get across the road to reach them :-)

    Hi all, just to let you know, we can get a 2 for 1 on this and many other attractions here http://m.daysoutguide.co.uk/mobile?nodepath=eltham-palace-and-gardens you do need to print the voucher though and present a valid train ticket. Please see t&c for further info. I've used it in the past and it does work :) Cheers, Kat

    July 16, 2014

    • Diane U.

      Eltham is in London Zone4, so those of us in London would be using oyster cards, freedom passes, etc., which are not eligible for the vouchers.

      July 17, 2014

    • Kat D.

      But you can buy a train ticket. Sometimes it's well worth it and is still a saving :)
