Visit to Lambeth Palace Gardens and the Garden Museum 1 June 2018

A few places are still remaining for our visit to Lambeth Palace and the Garden Museum Lambeth.

We will meet at the main gate of Lambeth Palace at 11am and be given a Library tour and overview of their archive collections, and a display of archives in the Great Hall, as well as brief introductions from the Conservation and Printed Books teams on their work. Please note the tour will involve climbing a medieval spiral staircase for which there is no alternative step-free access.

There will then be the opportunity to walk in the Palace gardens which are open from 12 to 3pm. Snacks can be taken into the gardens or into St Mary’s Garden if you bring a sandwich yourself. Otherwise there is a café in the Museum (although space there is limited) and in the Novotel opposite. There are also a number of other local eateries (details of which can be sent to those who sign up).

At 3pm we visit the Garden Museum, where Emma House will tell us about its collections and we will have the opportunity to see around the new Museum, which has recently re-opened after extensive refurbishment.

The cost of this visit will be £18 per person (£15 for members) which covers admission to the Palace, its gardens and the Museum. Please contact our Administrator at info@britishrecordsassociation.org.uk to book a place.
