Eltham Palace Venue Hire SE9
This luxurious Tudor palace is just waiting to host the most special of parties, dinners, receptions and conferences.
Eltham Palace is one of London’s most unusual and extraordinary venues. Once the chosen setting for the Christmas festivities of the Tudor court, the Eltham Palace venue has all the splendour and luxury one could want from a venue!
This prized English Heritage property is steeped in regal history. Once a party venue of both Edward II and Edward IV, it has an interesting and unusual history, which is what makes it so unique. Externally it is one of the few remaining examples of an important medieval palace but internally it is a creative Art Deco masterpiece oozing with 1930’s glamour.
Set within large and picturesque gardens, Eltham Palace can host up to 300 guests who may take over a series of rooms to experience the best of the Palace. After entering through the Entrance Hall, guests can be entertained in the Italian Drawing Room, the Dining Room, the Great Hall, the Oak Room, Large Meeting Room or Garden Marquee.Packages
Inside this circular wood panelled room, exquisitely picked out in shades of coffee and cream, is where many couples choose to marry. Like a Hollywood star, brides can make an entrance down one of a pair of curved staircases before the couple exchange vows beneath a glass dome. Family and friends can surround you during the ceremony and afterwards, French doors then lead directly to the terrace beyond, where drinks may be served in fine weather overlooking the flower gardens.

THE GREAT HALL
Separated from the main house only by a sliding Chinese lacquer screen, the contrast between Art Deco and Medieval is stunning. The hall may be used for larger ceremonies, but more usually hosts dining and dancing. It looks wonderful with enhanced lighting and a minstrels’ gallery may be used for live music performances. The room also opens directly onto lawns, which wedding parties can use in fine weather.

Reception: 200 people
The approach to Eltham Palace couldn’t be more impressive. After crossing an ancient bridge, guests can be dropped off right outside the elegant double front doors which lead into the Art Deco mansion and there is a large car park onsite for your guests to use.
Welcome your guests into the elegant Entrance Hall for registration, drinks and canapés. Make use of the Italian Drawing Room for your conference, breakout room or lunch area. Head out onto the adjoining terrace and south lawn for afternoon tea or evening drinks receptions.
