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. You 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

I want to thank you and your team for the truly excellent way you managed and looked after our wedding. You did a first rate job with a totally professional service which many guests have already commented upon. I am referring not only to what was done on the day but in the weeks and months of preparation, it was outstanding.

I would like to say a very big “Thank you “ for all your cheerful, professional and efficient guidance in the wedding preparations leading up to the event . I particularly appreciated that you were just at the end of the phone! It was an absolute privilege to enjoy the beautiful palace and grounds to ourselves for the occasion and with the daffodils and hyacinths out , plus the young leaves and blossom emerging, the grounds were stunning.
