Eltham Palace

UK»England»London»Eltham Palace

Combining Art Deco and ocean liner style, Eltham Palace is a stunning masterpiece of twentieth century design. Textile magnates Stephen and Virginia Courtauld built their glamorous London show piece in 1936, next to the remains of a medieval royal palace which was originally Henry VIII's boyhood home. The dining room features pink leather upholstered chairs and black-and-silver doors, portraying animals and birds from London Zoo. The Courtaulds home movie is another delight, showing them relaxing with their pet lemur. Discover many enticing features in the nineteen acres of surrounding gardens, including a sunken rose garden and medieval bridge.
