Lambeth Palace - the residence of the Bishop of London - has several notable surviving features, including the Lollards Tower and Tudor Gateway. The Great Hall, rebuilt, as it says, in 1663 after civil war damage, exults in a magnificent hammerbeam wooden roof.

Useful facts about Lambeth:
The London Borough of Lambeth is a London borough in south London, England and forms part of Inner London. The local authority is Lambeth London Borough Council. The name is recorded in 1062 as Lambehitha, meaning 'landing place for lambs', and in 1255 as Lambeth. Lambeth Marsh was drained in the 18th century but is remembered in the Lower Marsh street name.
Lambeth was part of the large ancient parish of Lambeth St Mary, the site of the archepiscopal Lambeth Palace, in the Brixton hundreds of Surrey. It was an elongated north-south parish with a two-mile River Thames frontage opposite the cities of London and Westminster. Lambeth became part of the Metropolitan Police District in 1829. It continued as a single parish for Poor Law purposes after the Poor Law Amendment Act 1834 and a single parish governed by a vestry after the introduction of the Metropolitan Board of Works in 1855.
Lambeth is unusual in that since 1994 the mayor is elected unanimously by their fellow councillors with each of the three political parties supplying a candidate in rotation. The Lambeth Borough website states this underlines the apolitical nature of the mayor’s role and enables them to represent all the citizens of the borough however somehave criticised this arrangement as the council ignoring the political mandate of the voters.
