VISIT TO ELTHAM PALACE & THE RED HOUSE

Eltham Palace

 
 
“Once a favoured medieval palace and then a Tudor royal residence, Eltham Palace was transformed into a striking Art Deco mansion by eccentric millionaires Stephen and Virginia Courtauld. Discover their stylish home which incorporates original medieval features into an otherwise ultra-modern 1930s design. Step into the shoes of the lavish Courtaulds and explore their extravagant lifestyle as you discover the state of the art technology and unusual features of their residence. Head out into 19 acres of award-winning gardens and climb, jump and explore in our play area inspired by Stephen and Virginia's travels across the globe”.

The Red House

  The Red House, now a National Trust Property, was the home of Arts and Crafts Movement founder William Morris and his wife Jane. It was built in 1859 by architect Philip Webb to Morris’s exact specifications. Red House features lovely Arts and Crafts furnishings, including wall paintings and stained glass windows.

Morris made the house a reflection of his philosophy in architecture and art, and a meeting place for the leading artistic figures of the day, including Dante Gabriel Rosetti, Edward Burne-Jones, and Ford Madox Brown.
