Eltham Palace & Gardens

Eltham Palace & Gardens 2-for-1 entry

Get one free entry with one full-paying adult, with your Gardeners’ World Magazine 2-for-1 entry card. Valid at 392 gardens.

Explore 19 acres of beautiful gardens, including the sumptuous herbaceous border created by RHS medal-winning designer Isabelle Van Groeningen. Wander around the rock garden with its pools and cascades running down to the moat. In the gardens, the moat reflects the changing colours of every passing season. Cross the moat on London’s oldest working bridge and relax in the sunken rose garden.


Part-medieval palace and part-1930s Manor House, Greenwich’s Eltham Palace and Gardens has been home to countless historical figures – from a young Henry VIII to the eccentric Courtauld family and their pet lemur, Jongy. Visit Eltham Palace to witness a merging of the centuries – the solemn majesty of the medieval Great Hall giving way to the Great Gatsby-esque luxury of its Art Deco extension.

Check before you travel

Before setting off check the garden’s website or call direct, as opening details can vary and one-off restrictions may apply.

We advise checking the garden’s own website or calling them direct to ensure the published details are accurate, as opening times and restrictions may vary.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you

Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.

If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.

Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
