About Eltham Palace

Court Yard, Eltham
Greenwich, London
South East London, SE9 5QE

Located in the leafy London borough of Greenwich, Eltham Palace is a truly magnificent and unique venue for your wedding. The stunning property was restored from a ruined palace into a chic home by Stephen and Virginia Coultauld in the 1930s. With elegant art deco style and medieval moated grounds, the former childhood home of Henry VIII is now a truly stunning wedding venue.

The venue boasts London’s oldest working bridge and a divine sunken rose garden. The property is complemented beautifully by the stunning London skyline.

Eltham Palace is ideal for grand weddings and small events, with three rooms available to choose from. The circular wood-panelled Entrance Hall provides a perfect backdrop for a romantic ceremony. The bride can make her grand entrance down a curved staircase before saying “I do” underneath the glass dome. French doors lead you and your guests out to the terrace overlooking the flower gardens, where you can toast to the future.

With beautiful hues of orange, ochre and blue, the Italian Drawing Room is ideal for your drinks reception. With its own Grand piano, the space has a wonderful atmosphere.

The Art Deco house is completed by the stunning Dining Room. The space boasts unique doors and delightful life drawings of the creatures of London Zoo in the 1920s. In this room, you can marvel at some of archaeological treasures in the Courtauld’s collection.

If you are planning a large, grand affair, the Great Hall is perfect. The elegant room can hold up to 200 people for a ceremony followed by dinner and an evening of dancing. The Hall is separated from the main house by a sliding lacquer screen with a stunning contrast between Art Deco and Medieval style. The minstrels’ gallery overlooking the hall is ideal for your live music or entertainment. The Great Hall opens directly onto the lawns and 19 acres of beautiful gardens. The stunning grounds provide the perfect backdrops for your photographs.

Eltham Palace is a truly spectacular venue for your big day. Your wedding will be made all the more special by the echoes of the grand events which have preceded it. You can imagine young Henry VIII feasting beneath the oak hammer beam roof, or the Courtaulds raising a glass with friends.

• Unique and historical house and garden • Ideal setting for both ceremonies and receptions • Top quality suppliers • Dedicated, professional hospitality staff

Winter Wedding at Eltham
Venue Service

By Sophie and Ed Powell, on 29 Mar 2015

We recently held our wedding reception at Eltham. The venue wowed all our guests and the staff (especially Sam Anderson) were a dream to work with. The Art Deco twist means to get the benefit of two very different styles of rooms for the different parts of your day. The grounds are beautiful too.

Exceptional quality of the staff (particular thanks to Sarah Horseman) matched the beauty (and functionality) of the surroundings. Ideal "out of London" venue for London based couples. EH really did help to take the bulk of the stress out of organising the day.

Tudor glory and Deco elegance
Venue Service

By Chris Taylor, on 03 Nov 2011

My wife and I were married at Eltham Palace in July 2011. The romantic intimacy of the round room was perfect for the ceremony (100 guests) and the Great Hall was the ideal location for the wedding breakfast and evening celebrations. The grounds offer fantastic photographic and catering opportunities. *All* the staff exceeded our expectations. A perfect wedding day.

i had my wedding at Eltham Palace early this year, and i just want to say the day was absolutely perfect! The venue is gorgeous, so much space both inside and out, and the staff were even kind enough to let us tour the upstairs! Having the venue exclusively for the day made us feel like kings and queens! the staff were so helpful, and the event manager helped us through every stage of our planning. such a perfect day, would recommend to anyone!!

Your own little part of History for the day

A stunning and unique combination of an art deco mansion adjoining what remains of a Medieval royal palace. You can hire the entire palace and magnificent moated grounds for the whole day at a reasonable price.
