Latest reviews | Events in Lambeth | 10 Places to Stay

Lambeth - an historic district close to the South Bank - is also referred to as Waterloo. But streets such as Lambeth Road and Lambeth Palace Road have some wonderful old buildings with a character quite distinct from the general spread of Waterloo. Chief among them is Lambeth Palace, home to the Archbishop of Canterbury since 1200 AD. The Palace, whose chapel and crypt date from the 13th Century, does not admit visitors except by arrangement, although its beautiful English gardens are opened for special events, including the annual Lambeth Fete. Next to the Palace is St Mary-at-Lambeth Church, whose medieval tower is still intact. The church's interior, complete with stained glass windows, is now home to the world's first Museum Of Garden History, with its own gardens flourishing delightfully in the graveyard. The pineapples at the ends of Lambeth Bridge are believed by many to commemorate the Tradescants, the father-and-son botanists who first grew pineapples in England and are now buried at the church. Not far away, in Lambeth Road, is the magnificent St George's Cathedral which, despite being bombed in 1941, still retains much of Pugin's original architecture. Near the cathedral is another great attraction, the Imperial War Museum
