In the south-western corner of SE1, the area around Lambeth Bridge has a lot to offer. Lambeth Palace, official residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury, is by the bridge. Adjacent to the Palace is the former church of St Mary-at-Lambeth, now home to the Museum of Garden History. Admiral Bligh of mutiny on the Bounty fame is buried in the churchyard.
Just across the road is the Novotel London Waterloo hotel.
