Europe's Most Weird Places!

Jump to last reply

What are some of the most unusual unorthodox or plain weird places you've been to in Europe?

One of my favorites is Eltham Palace in suburban London - of which the official site says illusrates "1930s Art Deco decadence. Built around the remains of an authnetically old medieval palace - Eltham Palace that was the childhood home of a young King Henry VIII no less the wealthy Courtauld Family bought the property and in the 1930s built new Art Deco edifices attached to a few remaining original parts.

Stephan Courtault who with his wife redid Eltham Palace dude was a war hero and adventurer - especially a mountaineer, climbing Mt Blanc - lots of relics of his advturing days are on display but it is the ornate lavish aspect that stuns visitors.

Folks must take off their street shoes at the entrance and put on special slippers to protect the fancy inlaid lfoors.

So for something way different check out weird Eltham Palace in Eltham, London, a suburb reached by Overground train from various London stations.
