The 16th-century Tudor Barn in Eltham is a venue for food and drink as well as for hosting weddings, parties and conferences. The barn - all that remains of a country mansion built for William Roper and Margaret More, daughter of Thomas More, Lord Chancellor to Henry VIII - is situated in 13 acres of beautiful award-winning garden, and surrounded by a medieval moat. The venue has stood on this ancient site, 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.
