Exploring The History Around Eldon House

Visit Us

Virtually unchanged since the nineteenth century, Eldon House is London’s oldest residence and contains family heirlooms, furnishings and priceless
treasures of the Harris Family. Eldon House is an historic site in downtown London that has been preserved and maintained since 1960 when it was
donated to the City of London. It was home to four generations of the Harris family, and is an excellent example of Georgian and Regency architectural
styles. Its gardens are considered among the most beautiful in the city.


Eldon House is proud to offer exciting events to the public. Many of our events are tied to the life and times of the Harris Family, while others aim to promote an understanding of history and an element of fun for all ages.
