About Eldon House Heritage Site and Gardens

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.

The Gardens

The Harris property originally consisted of 11 acres and a terraced walk spanned the two elevations of the site, from the house down to the flood plain. The property initially spanned along the Thames from Fullarton Street north to Central Avenue (then known as Great Market Street).
