Eltham Palace was a favourite site of English Monarchs for several hundred years. This moated ancient monument, run by English Heritage, consists primarily of the Great Hall, built around 1480, and the unusual "'Courtauld House"' attached to it. This was built in the mid 1930s, and has been renovated and refurnished superbly in its original style.
For more information on opening times, admission charges, events, travel information and hire please visit their website.
At the entrance to the palace, in Court Yard, you can see Chaundrye Close, once Cardinal Wolsey's residence, now privately owned.
There are many local roads that owe their names to this Royal residence - Tilt Yard, Archery Road, Court Road and Strongbow Crescent to name a few.
