Welcome to Eldon House

Eldon House is a historic site in downtown London that has been preserved and maintained since 1960 when it was donated to the City of London.

When you walk into the gates of Eldon House, you are walking into another time.

As you enter through the front doors, you will be welcomed by an Eldon House Historical Interpreter who will answer your questions and assist in making your visit as convenient and comfortable as possible. The tours of the museum are self-guided with opportunity to learn about the life and times and collections of Harris Family from staff and panels throughout the historic home. Read More.
