Eltham Palace from the 14th to the 16th century was a royal residence first occupied by Edward II in 1305. Henry VIII spent his childhood at the Palace. Apart from the magnificent Great Hall built by Edward IV in the 1470s, little remains of the original buildings. The current house was built in the 1930s. Stephen and Virginia Courtauld added many fine features to the house and what you will see is mainly as the Courtaulds created it. As well as the elegant rooms and furnishings, there is also a notable garden for Friends to enjoy.
The visit is limited to 16 Friends and places will be on a first come, first-served basis.
A bus will leave from the Goldsworth Park Recreation Ground Car Park, Wishbone Way, Woking at 9.30am and return at about 3pm.
