Lambeth Palace, on the south bank of the River Thames opposite Parliament, has been a historic London residence of Archbishops of Canterbury since the 13th Century. It acts as a home for the Archbishop and his family when in London - and as the central office for his national and international ministry.
The Atrium was built in the year 2000. This glass-roofed room is the most recent addition to be made to Lambeth Palace. However its awarding winning contemporary style was specially designed to sit sympathetically within its 13th and 19th century surroundings.
Today Lambeth Palace continues to be the London home of the Archbishop of Canterbury and his family. A series of offices at the Palace form the working centre of the Archbishop's national and international ministry.
The Lambeth Palace Library remains a place of academic study, while many of the beautiful rooms have retained their original function as spaces for hospitality.
The Chapel and the Crypt Chapel are used daily for worship and prayer by the Archbishop and his staff, the Chemin Neuf community at the Palace, as well as the many guests received by the Archbishop and his team.
