Combining Art Deco and chic ocean liner style, Eltham Palace and Gardens
is a stunning masterpiece of 20th century design. Textile magnates Stephen and
Virginia Courtauld built their glamorous showpiece in 1936, next to the remains
of a medieval royal palace, originally Henry VIII’s boyhood home. There will be
guided tours of both the house and the surrounding gardens, including a sunken
rose garden and medieval bridge.
