Well Hall is a place to the north of Eltham in the Royal Borough of Greenwich in southeast London, England, with no present formal boundaries and located 13.5 km (8.4 mi) east-southeast of Charing Cross. In the past Well Hall was the grounds of a manor house, and then a hamlet. Today it is a largely residential suburb and housing estate absorbed by the development of Eltham and London. It is centred on the main road between Eltham and Woolwich, on which many shops and businesses are located. Several major A roads including the South Circular Road and A2 road pass through the area, as does a railway line, serving Eltham station which is located in Well Hall. The Postcode that covers Well Hall and most of the Eltham area is SE9, and the 020 dialing covers the entire Royal Borough of Greenwich. Well Hall is split across two electoral wards, Eltham West on the west side of Well Hall Road, and Eltham North on the east side of Well Hall Road. In 2015 the population of these two wards combined was recorded as 24,621, although the wards cover a larger area than just Well Hall.
In 1100 two manors were recorded in the Eltham area, East-Horne and Well-hawe or Well-hall, probably corresponding to the areas later named Horn Park and Well Hall. The place was recorded as Wellehawe in 1401, then as Welhawe in 1446, meaning "a hedged enclosure by a spring or stream" from the Old English word Wella or Welle a spring or stream, and haga or hawe a hedged enclosure. On a 1746 map published by John Rocque it was recorded as Wale Hall, possibly erroneously. On a map by Emanuel Bowen from around 1762 it was also called Well Place. It was recorded as Well Hall on a 1797 map by Edward Hasted and in an 1801 Ordnance Survey map. The Hall part of the name refers to a Tudor mansion house that previously existed there built in the early sixteenth century.

This beautiful park constantly has gardeners changing displays throughout its numerous areas. The wisteria covered walkway, rose garden, duck filled medieval moat and multiple fountains form a perfect scene. It also houses old style beehives (no bees tho) and a bowling green. The Tudor Barn Restaurant, children's play ground and squirrels. It's a wonderful picnic spot with the co-op supermarket opposite and free toilets inside the park. My favourite area is the magical Woodland Glen. A winding pathway through a wild flower meadow, bordered by blossom trees, and a tiny river running down the centre. In the spring the entire glen fills with cherry blossom petals that cover the sky and coat the ground. The park's website: http://www.wellhall.org.uk/news.php

Beautiful surroundings, friendly people. The park is so well kept and we always have a great time there. We come almost every day :)

Stunning place. Quiet place to relax. Picnic, read or take kids. Can feed the birds or ducks. Squirrel will come and take from you hand. Beutiful garden's with wishing well. Some history to take in and a learning experience for kids with leaf finding. If your sports minded some great lawn bowls area. The Tudor barn is a great place for food or a cold one. If you're after some solitude it's easy to find a spot to catch up on thoughts. I would recommend this place highly.

If it's clear and sunny, places like this are just so beautiful, whether you're passing or you've got a long wait for your train, pop in and have a little walk around. it's a lovely place to clear your head or take a partner for a stroll: I've done both. The flowers are maintained perfectly however the ponds and mote need some work. ENJOY

Local small park that I have been going to ever since I can remember. A very calm and beautiful place to sit and relax or just take a slow walk around.

This delightful park, parcelled into exquisitely maintained and varied segments, a moat, bowling green et al, certainly a worthwhile destination in its own right. Comfortably counts amongst London’s finest small parks and worth a turn on your way to Eltham Palace which is just up the road.
