One of the more notable buildings in this area is Lambeth Palace which is the Archbishop of Canterbury’s official London home. His official library is also a public library and is located in the Palace. Many achives are kept here to do with the Archbishop of Canterbury and other church bodies. These date back to the 12th Century and make up part of the over 120,000 books kept there. The oldest part of the Palace dates back to the 13th Century and throughout the years many parts have been changed and added.
