Home to the Bishop of London since about 700 AD. Changing tastes have turned it into a mixture of Tudor, Georgian and Victorian styles. Inside is magnificent and the permanent displays are fascinating. But to truly appreciate the history, the superb guided tours are essential. The botanical garden, created in the 16th Century, is equally important and where the first Magnolia in Europe was grown.
