Eltham Palace is an impressive historical site that has been linked with a distinguished line of Royal figures since its construction in the 1300s. For hundreds of years it was a key residence for the monarchy, even housing a young Henry VIII; by the 1630s, the palace had passed into new ownership and continued to change hands until Civil War when it was used as a barn.
This evocative London palace has a fascinating history – not only is it famous for housing Royalty but (having been bought by Stephen Courtauld in the 1930s) it was partially converted into an excellent example of an Art Deco house. Few London palaces can boast such a varied past.
