Visit Lambeth Palace

Find out about guided tours, open days and special events at Lambeth Palace.
Lambeth Palace exterior

As it is a working palace and a family home, Lambeth Palace is not open to the public on a daily basis. However, there are a number of ways you can visit: 


Guided tours

Our guided tours are given regularly 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.

Tickets for guided tours are available to purchase via Universe. Any available tours will be shown here, and new tour dates are added directly to the site.


Fetes and special events

The North Lambeth Parish Fete has been running at Lambeth Palace since Victorian times, raising money for the community. It is a fun family day filled with games, toys, crafts and a variety of food.

We like to say it never rains on the Fete so please join us in 2020 on Saturday 27th June.

Find out more on the North Lambeth Parish website.


Garden open days

The garden is open to the public once a month between April and September. The Open Days are hosted by local charities and all profit made on the day goes to the charity.

Our 2020 dates and charity hosts will be announced in February 2020.
