Lambeth Palace Garden: A Unique Biew of London

Lambeth Palace is the London residence for the Archbishop of Canterbury. It sits across the Thames from the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. Generally, the palace can only be visited by booking a tour. However, for the summer months through October, the garden is open to the public on the first Wednesday of the month. The entry fee is £4, which includes a tea or coffee and biscuits. Lambeth Palace Garden: A Unique View of London

J and I enjoyed our visit to the palace garden. It was very pleasant. It felt more like an English garden party than a tourist attraction. Nonetheless, it wasn’t what either of us had been expecting. Personally, I was expecting formal gardens, like those at Versailles. Instead, it felt like an exceptionally manicured private park. Lambeth Palace Garden: A Unique View of London
