The Crown has used Eltham Palace as a backdrop for many of its travel-themed locations, including the HMSS Queen Mary and the Queen’s quarters of the Royal Yacht Britannia. The Art Deco mansion was an ideal spot for the boat sequences, since the rooms on the first floor resembled cabins of luxury cruise liners during the 1930’s. Perhaps the most notable use of Eltham House was during the fashion show scene in the second season, where designer Norman Hartnell paraded dresses for Her Royal Highness to choose from. A visit to the impressive property—aside, of course, from embarking on a similar Queen-esque journey—merits a look into magical award-winning gardens, as well as other immersive activities such as games and music-playing.
