Eltham Palace to showcase jousting event

Published: Sunday 1st of March 2009

The history of London is set to come alive this June as part of a month-long programme of events, it has been revealed.

Highlights of the Story of London include jousting at Eltham Palace, an art deco-style property built by Stephen and Virginia Courtauld in 1936.

Its dining room chairs feature images of animals and birds from London Zoo, making it a place not to be missed when visiting the events of the Story of London.

Other historical parts of the repertoire include a Tudor river pageant, which will sail from the Tower of London to Hampton Court Palace and feature King Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon.

It will commemorate 500 years since the king's ascension to the throne and is set to be a truly memorable event.

Tourists wanting to see Eltham Palace can do so for free with the London Pass, saving £8.20 on an adult ticket and £4.10 on a child's.
