Originally built by Henry VIII, over time Walmer has played host to the Duke of Wellington, William Pitt the Younger and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. The 10-acre gardens reflect this long history and the castle's transformation from fortress to elegant royal residence.
A former medieval palace, Eltham was in a sorry state before millionaires Stephen and Virginia Courtauld transformed it into a stunning Art Deco home in the 1930s.
