Lambeth Palace

Lambeth Palace is the London home of the Archbishop of Canterbury, his family and two religious communities. It is the centre of his ministry, worship and hospitality. The Palace is also used as an events venue for organisations and charities. During the summer the beautiful garden is often host to receptions and outdoor activities.In the grounds of Lambeth Palace, you will find Lambeth Palace Library, which houses the largest religious collection outside of the Vatican.

We will be opening the Palace Gardens on Monday 17th May from 5pm – 8pm, with last entry at 7pm, for visitors to enjoy the spring planting. ⁠Funds raised from tickets will be donated to the National Garden Scheme’s 2021 charity partners.⁠⁠ We recommend booking tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. Tickets are £6 for adults with free tickets for children. Tickets are available to purchase in advance on the National Garden Scheme website here.⁠ We look forward to welcoming you back to the Gardens for this special evening.

Guided tours

No tours are scheduled at this time, following Public Health England advice regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus).  Our guided tours are given by excellent volunteer guides. You will have the chance to explore the rooms and chapels of Lambeth Palace, and hear about the history of the Archbishops of Canterbury.

Garden open days

It is with deep regret that we are unable to host our charity Garden Open Day events at Lambeth Palace due to site maintenance. We will strive to reopen for Garden Open Days as soon as possible. Please check our regularly updated website for more information.
