We saw this as we whizzed by on our hop on hop off bus tour. Tudor style, only the gardens are open, it's the residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

We walked past here to enjoy a riverside walk in New Year’s Day. We saw lots of the palace and the gardens from the riverside. It was really interesting to see the residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

We booked the Old Study for a staff lunch. Arranging this was straightforward as the staff were very helpful in the booking process. That warmth and helpfulness continued even as we had to make last minute changes. On the day, we were greeted with happiness and treated as if we were royalty! The food was incredible. The staff were happy. The presentation was very good. If you fancy a treat at the heart of London - do make a booking here.

I went during OpenHouse London, which is a weekend when it's open for free. Fantastically beautiful building with a rich history, and a great deal of beautiful garden space- especially for London! The tour that day was self-guided, but every room had guides in it, so it was effectively the same as a guided tour, but at your own pace
