    Eltham Palace dates from medieval times but the only bit that remains is the highly-restored Great Hall. In the 1930s the Courtauld family rebuilt what was then a ruin. Unfortunately they added a larg...  more »

    Attractive house and gardens. Historic great hall,restaurant has good quality food but can be a bit pricey. English Heritage have made the place very child friendly.  more »

    There was much more to see here than we had anticipated. Very close to Eltham centre this is a hidden treasure. The great hall was restored to its original glory but the home that the Courtauld's buil...  more »

  • The house is beautiful, full of art, architecture, history. The gardens are also beautiful, magnificent. Both give a glimpse of past lives. You also get the feeling the house was a happy home. An adventure playground for your little terrors and tea and cakes for you. It all makes for a wonderful relaxing afternoon.
  • Eltham Palace is a wonderfully preserved and fascinating place to visit and if you're fan of art deco then you're in for a real treat. With a checkered history charting both that of an Ex-Royal Palace, and the home of an incredibly interesting and wealthy couple in the 1930's. The tour affords a fascinating overview of how the place in it's current form came to be and the life of the Courtauld family in that era.
  • Fascinating and engaging day out. Unlike many other EH or NT houses, Eltham Palace and its decor and contents are connected to the house and its former occupants. Beautiful Art Deco surroundings and a taste of privileged life in the 1930s. Great audio guides kept our sons interested the whole way round. Not one utterance of the word "bored". Highly recommended!
  • Beautiful garden, nice playground for kids, lovely dinnig area, interesting palace nicely presented, lovely staff at the entrance, lovely setting place out under the trees were visitors can have a snacks, coffee or tea. I could give one star more if the little shop wouldn't have the shelves empty at 3pm...especially in a sunny day where it was expected to have more visitors. However, lovely day out and pleased with the choice of the day.
  • Nice park. Clean. Lots of open space. Perfect for a family picnic and a dog walk lots of miles for joggers and enjoy a green house garden and cafes in the park. Basket ball and football facilities.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
