King's Society: Visit to Lambeth Palace


Thursday 8th February 2018 2pm


Lambeth Palace, London SE1 7JU

Lambeth Palace (originally the Manor of Lambeth or Lambeth House) on the south bank of the Rover Thames opposite the Palace of Westminster has been the historic London residence of Archbishops of Canterbury since the 13th century. Today Lambeth Palace continues to be the London home of the Archbishop of Canterbury and his family. A series of offices at the Palace form the working centre of the Archbishop's national and international ministry. It is also home to the community of Saint Anselm that is under the Archbishop's patronage.

We have arranged a private tour of the Palace which will include the Archbishop of Canterbury's State Rooms, the Great Hall, the 13th century Chapel, modern Atrium and ancient Crypt. Our tour will last about 90 minutes. As a suggestion, the newly opened Garden Museum is situated next to Lambeth Palace. The museum celebrates British gardens and gardening. Visits to the museum are self-guided and take about an hour. The Garden Café woudl be a good venue for lunch prior to our visit to Lambeth Palace.

Price per person £22. Number of places 40.  Website booking available from 11th January 2018 .
