New exclusive packages and guided tours have been announced for groups visiting London at Eltham Palace and Gardens and Kenwood.
The new Millionaire Package offer at Eltham Palace and Gardens in London, will provide GTOs the opportunity to book the whole of Eltham Palace to give group members a taste of the 1930s highlife when the house would normally be closed, running from 1st November 2018 until 31st January 2019.
Up to 50 people can be hosted on a personalised tour of the Art Deco mansion, where they will find out about the decadent lifestyle of society millionaires Stephen and Virginia Courtauld, who transformed the site of the Medieval palace into a 1930s Hollywood-style party house.
This package, which must be pre-booked, also includes tea or coffee and cake, served in the Eltham Palace Orangery.
English Heritage has also introduced a new guided tour at Kenwood, Robert Adam’s ‘architectural masterpiece’ in Hampstead.
Called Slavery and Justice, the tour looks at the slave trade and the impact Lord Mansfield, late 18th-century owner of Kenwood, had on its abolition in his role as Lord Chief Justice.
It also delves into the story of Dido Belle, Lord Mansfield’s great niece, a woman of mixed heritage who grew up at Kenwood.
Guided tours of Kenwood’s extensive art collection, which also includes works by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Van Dyke, Constable, Turner and many of the Dutch masters, are also available.
