There's a corner of the Garden Museum dedicated to local history. Which seems appropriate given the church of St Mary-at-Lambeth that houses the museum was founded by at least 1062.
Just to the left of the main entrance, above a rare, Grade II listed full immersion font, an AV presentation tells the story of Lambeth, starring The Thames, the coming of bridges, Blake, industry, horticulture, politics, war and.. um, Marmite.
Two cases display artifacts from Lambeth's past and we selected a few of our favourite things to give you a (yeasty) flavour of the perfectly petite collection.
The Garden Museum is open daily from 10.30am-5pm. Check the website for occasional closures on the first Monday of the month. Admission £6/5/3, kids free.
