Eldon House is London's oldest surviving residence. Built in 1834 by Captain John Harris, the historic house remained in the Harris family until 1959, when it was given to the City complete with family furnishings. Visitors can enjoy tours with costumed interpreters, workshops, readings and concerts, as well as traditional summer teas, an annual garden party, and traditional New Year's levée. Croquet is offered free to visitors Sunday afternoons in July and August from 1:00 4:00 pm.
