Lambeth Palace Library
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
Founded in 1610, the historic library of the Archbishops of Canterbury serves today as the principal library and record office for the history of the Church of England.
James I described it as ‘a monument of fame' in his kingdom, while Peter the Great, who visited in 1698, is recorded as saying that nothing in England astonished him as much as Lambeth Library – he had never thought there were so many books in all the world.
