Lambeth Palace in 2000
As part of celebrations to mark the year 2000, the Archbishop of Canterbury and Eileen Carey have decided to open much of Lambeth Palace to the general public for the first time ever.
A special exhibition is envisioned using a number of the Palace's treasures, say organisers, who add that major sponsors are being sought to underwrite costs.
Expected to run from April to October, the exhibition will tell the story of the coming of Christianity to England; the roles played by Archbishops of Canterbury through the centuries; the multi-faceted work of the Archbishop of Canterbury today; and the significance of the Anglican Communion around the world moving into the Third Millennium.
Information about guided tours and a ``timed ticket'' system is expected to made available next year. Further information may be obtained by writing to the Lambeth 2000 Coordinator, Lambeth Palace, London SE1 7JU.
