Thank you for your review and it's great to hear that you had such an enjoyable visit. Eltham Palace is just a short walk from either Eltham or Mottingham stations with regular trains from Charing Cross, Waterloo East, London Bridge and Cannon Street.

Can’t say we were very enchanted with this event at Eltham Palace. For £12 non members and £8 members there is a short walk around the grounds, which have been lit quite prettily. The walkways are very uneven and badly lit ironically. Dangerous for the...More
