Description

In 1935, an initial design for the Eltham Palace gardens was produced by Andrew Mawson and Partners for the Courtauld's. This was then modified to incorporate ornamental plantations, shrubberies and specimen trees.

The palace's 19 acres of beautiful gardens feature both 20th-century and medieval elements. The Courtauld's were keen horticulturists and new areas were laid out including a rock garden sloping down to the moat, a medieval bridge, herbaceous borders, a sunken rose garden and plenty of picnic areas. Striking at any time of year, garden highlights include the Spring bulbs display and the wisteria cascading over the classical pergola in Summer.
