Eltham Palace is wonderfully restored and has a fascinating history. The downstairs hallway for which it is famous is absolutely beautiful as are the rest of the rooms. I think this is a particularly interesting place to visit because the family story (the Courtaulds of haberdashery empire and then philanthropic art fame) is relatively recent (20th century), so you really do feel as if you are stepping back to when they were there and experiencing precisely what they experienced. The best English Heritage venue we have been to, and we can't wait to go back in spring.
