Archbishop's Park

Archbishop's Park is located in Lambeth North, adjacent to the River Thames and opened in 1901. The garden area at the northern end was dedicated to Octavia Hill who campaigned for better housing and access for the poor and disadvantaged. There is also a community orchard in the north-west corner of the park and there are bench seats along the paths to rest. There are facilities including a children's playground, games court and an outdoor gym.


There is a gated children's playing area in the middle of the park with a variety of features to play with and explore such as swings, slides, climbing frames and ropes and more. Get active and play football in the football pitches or have fun in the tennis courts, playing with your friends and family.

Food & Drink

The Corner Cafe is 186 yards from the park so you can have a rest there. Enjoy a range of delicious meals like toasties, fish and chips or a classic English Breakfast or enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. There are also vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options available.


Accessible toilets as well as baby changing facilities available.

Opening Times

Open from 07:30 until 15 minutes before sunset.

Getting There

You can get to the park by public transport and visit the TFL (Transport for London) website to plan your journey easily, knowing which bus or train to take at which times. The postcode is SE1 7LE which you can use to help you to get there using a map or GPS device. The park doesn't have its own car parking facilities and there aren't any within 200m so we recommend taking public transport.
