Lambeth Archives

Lambeth Archives is the record office and local studies library for the London borough of Lambeth. We hold the historic records of Lambeth council, the deposited records of many local organisations and a local studies and museum collection.

While you will still need to visit Lambeth Archives to consult the majority of our document, maps and books, you can now also access many parts of our collection online.

Lambeth Landmark image website

Our images website offers instant access over 16,000 photographs, illustrations, maps and other documents of Lambeth. Most can also be purchased online as photographic prints, or via Lambeth Archives as digital files.
