Lambeth Palace gardens

Dating back to the 12th Century, the garden at Lambeth Palace is the oldest continuously-cultivated garden in London. Thanks to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, the gardens of Lambeth Palace were opened to visitors in 2015 for the first time in its 800-year history.

In the grounds of Lambeth Palace, you will see Lambeth Palace Library, which houses the largest religious collection outside of the Vatican.

Garden Open Days are hosted by local charities and all profit made on the day goes to the charity.

Visitors can enjoy the 11-acre garden this summer on the following dates in 2022:

  • Friday 6 May
  • Friday 8 July
  • Friday 2 September

Gates are open 12 to 3pm. Admission is £5 for adults and children go free.

Refreshments will be available to purchase.

Dogs are welcome. Please be aware that security searches will be in operation upon arrival.
