Last update: April 2024

Tudor Barn Eltham is an idyllic, exclusive-use wedding venue located in Greenwich, England. This South East London hidden gem is nestled on 13 acres of exquisite parkland and overlooks a medieval moat. It provides a serene, scenic, and secluded backdrop for your celebration while remaining conveniently accessible to the amenities and attractions of Central London. Only 20 minutes from the city centre, the barn is one of only a few genuine Tudor Barns still standing today. It is all that is left of the country mansion that William Roper built for Margaret Moore in 1525. Its romantic origin story will serve to highlight your own happily ever after as you dine and dance the night away.

Facilities and Capacity

Weddings at Tudor Barn Eltham are held in the stunning Tudor Gallery, which features original beams and breathtaking stained glass windows. In the warmer summer months, you can also take advantage of several delightful outdoor spaces. These include the Moat Terrace and Tudor Lawn. The venue has a capacity of 160 seated during the day and 200 standing for the evening reception.

Services Offered

When you wed at Tudor Barn Eltham, you will be carrying on the tradition of celebrated nuptials hosted at the venue, including those of Hubert Bland and Edith Nesbit. Just because your wedding carries on this legacy, however, does not mean that it won't be original.

These professionals provide in-house catering and beverages, an entertainment team for your DJ or live musicians, and seamless service.

A Perfect Day, supported by the Perfect Team.

We first came across Tudor Barn when searching for a venue in London, which has the look and feel of being 'outside of the city'. We fell in love with not only the venue upon seeing it, but with our interaction with Jade who explained everything in detail without overloading.

Upon choosing the venue, we then attended the showcase evening which was a great opportunity to meet Suzie and also external suppliers (three of which we went with and all of which we would recommend STAAR, Chic & Doubletree Hilton Greenwich) The evening gave us a great opportunity to see the venue in the evening, meet the team and get a feel for what our day could be like - so would recommend going if you get the chance/are undecided.

The planning up to the day was seamless. we attended food tasting which was lovely and we were allowed to bring additional guests at a cost which meant we could include others in the process which was a lovely touch.

Our calls with Suzie to discuss food and drink options were helpful, and clear deadlines were set for us to get back to her with all the information.

On the day we cannot fault the effort to which the team went to, the work that was put into our day was amazing, we were made to feel like everything was in control, nothing was too much trouble and that our guests were being looked after. There were a number of 'curveballs' thrown their way which they handled with care and ease - talk about over and above.

I emailed them after to say I hope they recognise that it's not easy to make people feel that relaxed on one of the most intense days but they all did it with such grace and care - everyone was a superstar.

Amazing Venue!

Really lovely venue tucked away in Eltham, train station and main roads close by so easy to get to. Food was delicious and the staff really helpful. A wide menu to choose from and they let us choose our own evening food. Surrounding gardens beautiful and well kept, and are great for photos.

Overall great experience.

Overall our wedding experience at the Tudor Barn on Saturday 23 September 2023 was great.

Positives were:
- The venue itself and grounds looked beautiful on the day and were well maintained
- The running of the day was organised very smoothly by the staff without being in your face
- The staff were attentive, efficient and had a good attitude
- The canapés, 3-course dinner and evening food was excellent and got a lot of compliments
- The drinks reception music by guitarist J was just the right volume and played very well
- The venue-owned items like tables, chairs, post box etc. were good quality and it was nice not to have to think about a lot of those things
- The overall value for money I’d say was pretty good

Negatives were:
- We found it a bit tricky at times to personalise the day and the decorations as much as we wanted, and we felt a bit like the venue would prefer we fit into a ‘package’
- We’d said a few times we wanted no one to pay for drinks and a bar tab to be set up until the free drinks package started in the evening, but this didn’t happen and I had to ask the bar to start one before the ceremony, although this didn’t happen as I found out people were still having to pay for drinks
- The DJ provided by the events company STAAR wasn’t great. He messed up the first dance song, didn’t play all the songs we’d asked for, refused requests even though we’d said to allow them and the mixing between songs was awkward
- The selfie mirror operator, again provided by STAAR, pushed someone who tapped him on the shoulder to ask a question and grabbed a hat off someone’s head which pulled at their neck, so a bit aggressive

We had an absolute blast and will remember it for the rest of our lives! 

Our guest adored the venue! We got married on the hottest Saturday of the year and the venue worked perfectly, the mix of indoor and outdoor space allowed the day to flow perfectly, creating a relaxed, fun atmosphere. Every guest felt so welcome and comfortable. The staff were incredible from planning through to the day, adapting to our requests, and had such helpful advise. Suzie, Georgia and Jade we can not thank you enough for such an incredible, happy day!

Perfect wedding

Great day!

My wedding was only a few weeks ago and I couldn’t have asked for more! The team was great, they have a wonderful place for weddings and celebrations, if you’re looking for a rustic vibe in London with accessible prices come here!

Had the place just for our guests, DJ, canapés and a lot of wine! Stressful months planing but at the end everything went well.

Thank you once again!

Beautiful wedding day

The venue has good flexibility as food and drinks is done by min spend, so we opted for buffet and canapes instead of a traditional sit down course. Suzie was great in the lead up to the planning and we had 2 long phone calls to go through everything. The team was probably a little too organised and i felt bad for wanting to add loads of things last minute but they were okay with all my last min additions and changes. You also drop off all your decorations the day before and they will help you set up everything! (or liaise with the suppliers to help set up everything!)

Everyone had a great time and loved the venue and food. The venue itself is so beautiful and is also surrounded by a pretty park which has a lovely bridge and water feature. It was a shame we didn't have much time to enjoy the food we paid for, husband got a little annoyed as he didn't get to enjoy much of the canapes and had to have the dessert cold as we were taking pictures and everyone kept going up to him to tell him how amazing the food was!

The only downside was that we couldn't jump during the dancefloor as it was right underneath where they kept the wine. Was a teensy bit of a buzzkill but overall a great day!

Fantastic service from the people at Tudor Barn Eltham

We had a fantastic time on our wedding day, and much of that was due to the efforts by the staff at Tudor Barn Eltham. The organisation, food, service, and effort by the staff was fantastic, including the lady (I believe her name is Ella), who was very accommodating to our requests and made sure we got what we needed. There were other staff members who provided a fantastic service, sadly I cannot remember their names. The location was also great, especially the Italian Gardens behind the barn where we took loads of photos. We will happily recommend this venue and their services to anyone.

Stunning Wedding Venue

We recently had our wedding reception at the Tudor Barn (18.09.2021) and every element of our day was absolutely perfect. Suzie was so helpful, right from the start of wedding planning and made us feel so at ease with everything.

Even the companies recommended to us were lovely; we literally cannot thank you enough for the help and suggestions giving, and just making our day pure perfection.

The venue is such a lovely place, with beautiful surroundings. It really is the perfect place for a country feel, when you live in the city!
Also, the food served was absolutely delicious. We do have a few super fussy eaters and we were able to get everyone catered for!

All the staff that work at the Tudor Barn are literally amazing. All so polite and friendly, literally nothing was too much trouble. We have wheelchair users in the family and the staff were so caring and made them feel safe in getting up and down the stairs.

I could literally sing the Tudor Barns praises all day long. We had the most special day and a big chunk of it is thanks to EVERYONE at the Tudor Barn! 100% would recommend to everyone.

Perfectly Professional

Suzie and the team went above and beyond to ensure that our guests saw a day that went completely to plan. Behind the scenes, we had been let down by our florist and on the day itself our cake wasn't delivered. Despite these challenges, the team did an incredible job at decorating the venue with the flowers we were able to source the day before and even managed to get a cake so we could do the obligatory photos. We cannot thank the team enough for all of their hard work.

A blissful space and outdoor setting for a wedding!

There dining service is amazing and you have so much freedom of space to move around. A lot of lovely natural light beaming through, where you can see the pond area outside.
As a filmmaker, I enjoy shooting wedding her, because you have that lovely scenery, tucked behind the venue, that is great for bride and groom shoots and family gatherings. I can't recommend this place enough. Always kept tidy and beautiful.

Our dream Wedding

We had the most wonderful wedding day from start to finish! The venue hosts sorted everything and we had literally no stress at all during the whole day!
Suzie and the team were great throughout our wedding organising and on hand whenever we needed any help. On the day, the staff were fantastic and our guests said it was the most seamless wedding they have experienced! We had 80 guests and 30 more in the evening. They all had the best time!
Thank you for our perfect day!

July 2023 wedding

I got married at the Tudor Barn in July 2023 and the whole process was seamless. Suzie was super organised and helpful, and she patiently accommodated for all our needs! The day itself was a massive success, the staff on the day were very well-organised and we literally didn’t have to do anything on the day as they were so proactive and clearly very experienced. Everything went smoothly with no issues. Our guests had lots of compliments about the event and venue. They set up the table decor so we’ll and even did things like moving the flowers from the ceremony table to the sweetheart table, and helping put the button hole on the groom, making sure my dress looked right before walking in, drying the flowers from the bouquet before I held it etc! Even making sure we both had a drink right after the ceremony. Just so many things they thought about which were incredible.

The food was lovely & the venue itself was everything we hoped for. We had some guests with allergies and it all went very well thanks to the organisation of the team. Thanks so much to everyone at Tudor Barn for making the day such a success.
