In 2019, Enchanted Eltham Palace brings back favourite elements enjoyed last year, but with added new enchantments to brighten winter evenings – including interactive activities where visitors can change the colour and projections on the historic palace walls and ring chiming bells to play a favourite seasonal tune.

There are magical secrets hidden deep within the grounds, including dancing fairies and extraordinary talking trees, and the ancient moat will once again be brought to life with fountains that rise and fall to beguiling music.
