Set in 19 acres of beautiful gardens, Eltham Palace is a masterpiece of 20th-century design. Completed in 1936, the red brick exterior of the house was built in sympathy with the adjoining Great Hall of medieval Eltham Palace. Inside is a glamorous 1930s showpiece, an eclectic mix of Art Deco, ultra-smart ocean-liner style and cutting-edge Swedish design. We need volunteers to help bring the palace to life by welcoming visitors and providing information about the history of the palace and the Courtauld family.

About Eltham

Eltham is in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, south east London. It has good transport to central London and is close to Greenwich and the Kent countryside.

Its main shopping area is the High Street, with diverse shops - the usual Boots, Marks & Spencer, Next type shops but also many independent retailers. There are several smaller local shopping areas serving their communities.

Apart from an abundance of green space, Eltham abounds with history - Eltham Palace, favourite home of Henry VIII and run by English Heritage, is just off Eltham High Street, with Well Hall Pleasaunce and the Tudor Barn, just down the road and close to Eltham Station. This was once owned by the Roper family (Sir William Roper was married to Margaret, daughter of Sir Thomas More), more recently lived in by Edith Nesbit and where she wrote The Railway Children.

A few of the famous names associated with Eltham are Bob Hope (he was born here, and our theatre is called "The Bob Hope Theatre"), Boy George who went to school here, Kate Bush bought a house here in the 1980s, Billy Bonds grew up here, Dennis Healy lived in The Eltham Hutments .... the list could go on.
