The Eltham Palace is an Art Deco mansion on 19 acres of award-winning gardens. You’ll find it in the Eltham area of London, about 40 minutes’ drive from the city centre.

The gardens have a rock garden, moat, medieval bridge, rose garden, and a herbaceous border. The gardens won a gold award in the London Bloom Awards 2017, and there is also a glasshouse café with alfresco dining options.

Latest Eltham Palace parking reviews
Easy to find and just on the edge of the ULEZ zone. 5 minutes to Eltham Station for Charing Cross. Tried to phone the mobile number but only got to the answer machine and no response however. Position A is right in front of the main building.Iain
