Opening up the Medieval Tower

As part of the Garden Museum Development Project we are hoping to open the Medieval Tower of St Mary-at-Lambeth to the public. 

The Tower is the oldest part of the church of St Mary-at-Lambeth, built in 1377 it is the second oldest structure in Lambeth , and from the top it provides a unique view of London and the river Thames - Wenceslaus Hollar is thought to have stood on top of the tower to draw part of his 1647 'Prospect of London and Westminster'.

Before 2017 the tower has been closed to members of the public but as part of the redevelopment The Garden Museum will open this unique and special view up to anyone who wishes to see it. In March 2017 a steel platform was lifted on to the top of the tower using a mobile crane.
