Combined visits to Greenwich historic sites

Date Posted: 05/01/2011

Groups visiting the capital can now book a combined visit to historic attractions Eltham Palace & Gardens, and Ranger’s House.

The full day itinerary begins with a 90-minute guided tour of Eltham Palace, where groups can explore the glamour of the Art Deco period. Highlights include the spectacular domed entrance hall, the gold mosaic-tiled bathroom of 1930s owner Virginia Courtauld, the pink, black and silver dining room, and the contrasting Great Hall of medieval Eltham Palace (the childhood home of Henry VIII). Groups will then have an hour to enjoy the 19-acres of picturesque gardens.

A buffet lunch will be served on arrival at Ranger’s House - included as part of the package - with a choice of meat and cheese platters, salads, fruit, cake, and tea or coffee with wine as an optional extra. Lunch will be followed by a 90-minute tour of Ranger’s House, where groups can view more than 700 works of art, including early religious statues, Dutch Old Masters, Renaissance bronzes, silver treasures, and carved gothic ivories.

Available from the 1st March until the last week of December, groups of 11 or more can take advantage of this combined visit from Monday to Wednesday. The package costs £29 per person, or £14 for English Heritage members, and this does not include transport.
