Eltham Palace Gardens

Just up the A2 from where we live, heading towards London, is a place called Eltham, which has an estate managed by The English Heritage called Eltham Palace and Gardens. I can’t remember the last time we visited, however on one of our trips, standing on the back I managed to capture this photograph of the wooden bridge and the palace.

Eltham palace sits on a moat, with two sides landscaped and planted whilst the other two sides are like a traditional moat full of water.

In fact, to get to the Palace you have to walk over a stone bridge spanning the water.

The following photograph is of one of the landscaped sides with a wooden bridge.

  2. I love Eltham Palace. When I come to stay with my London family, I often take the grandchildren there. We invariably have a good time: me in the house and grounds generally, and they in the adventure playground.

    1. The only thing we found you want allowed to take photos in the house… It might have changed now .. but that entrance is so grand.

  3. The house is stately, the bridge is gorgeous! Perfect choice to photograph the house from where you did which really features the bridge. 🙂
