  • A very pleasant half day escape from central London is to take the train to Mottingham station, from where it is an easy walk to the Palace, which is run by English Heritage. The main focus is the unu...  read more »

  • Mid-morning coffee , a walk round the gardens, tasty sandwiches and tea for lunch in the old greenhouses. For the cafe, you have to order at the desk, and meals are delivered to your table, so it is not like one of the reviews I read which suggested table service. And in between, a wonderfully interesting house to walk round with an electronic guide to assist.
  • Loved it. Time well spent with family in an oasis of royal old world proportions. Best electronic tour guide I've come across. The history and the stories of the former residents are simply stunning. Art Deco at its imperious best. Must do again with family visiting from abroad.
  • An intriguing Medieval and Art Deco cocktail. Extensive and magnificent gardens especially deserving of kudos. This is really worth the schlep. Bravo !
  • A really nice English Heritage site. The palace is an amazing building of two completely different eras. Lots of interesting history and the interiors where in great condition. Gardens are fairly large and well kept, lovely to walk round on a nice day. There is also a nice cafe to get drinks and food.
  • The gardens are lovely and English Heritage have fun events in the summer but the first floor is inaccessible for wheelchairs. The building isn't much fun for young children-they enjoy the gardens much more.
