Something enchanting is happening at the historic Eltham Palace. Its gardens will be filled with light, colour and sound as English Heritage’s brand new season of ‘Enchanted’ events begin.
The former royal palace turned art deco mansion will be bathed in dramatic illuminations, bringing its rich mediaeval history to life through the medium of light. In the grounds, strings of lanterns laced through the boughs of trees and fairy lights twinkling behind leaves will lead visitors along an enchanting garden trail into a magical wonderland.
This festive installation will celebrate the vibrancy of the mediaeval period through light trails and projections, transporting visitors back in time and enabling them to experience the property’s history in a special way.
And the experience doesn’t end when the trail does with mince pies and mulled wine. There is Christmas shopping to be had at the heritage-inspired shop too.
The event runs from Friday, December 15 to Saturday, December 23. Eltham Palace is at Court Yard, Eltham, Greenwich, London, SE9 5QE
