Tudor Barn Eltham is all that remains of the country mansion that was built for William Roper and Margaret More, daughter of Thomas More, Lord Chancellor to Henry VIII and is surrounded by a medieval moat and nearby scented gardens. The venue is situated in thirteen acres of beautiful award winning gardens and has stood on this ancient site, which is connected historically with the Tudor Monarchs´ residence at nearby Eltham Palace, since 1525.
Sir Gregory Page acquired the Well Hall Estates from the Roper family in 1733 and a new house was built between the moat and Well Hall Road. Its most famous occupant was children’s author Edith Nesbit, who wrote The Railway Children, and lived here from 1899 until 1922.
The 16th Century Tudor Barn is a haven of rural peace just twenty minutes from Central London, and is a fantastic destination venue for excellent food and drinks. as well as being the perfect setting to host events including weddings, parties, conference, wakes and special occasion.
