Located next to Southwell Palace
Oct 2021
The medevial palace is in ruins. The Medevial Archbishop’s Palace was built on the remains of a Roman palace. We could only go around the outside walls of the ruins. The present Archbishops residence has been built into some of the remains of the medieval palace. Charles I surrendered here.

Relaxing and calm garden space
Aug 2021 • Couples
Currently only the gardens are open, or certainly were when we visited. It’s been made into a kind of sensory gardens with lots of information points and interesting varieties. Relaxing and calm outdoor space, worth popping to if visiting the minster as it’s just off of a path from it.

HISTORY IN A LOVELY TOWN!
Feb 2020
Whilst visiting Southwell I had a walk down to The Archbishops Palace.
A lovely building, steeped in history of Charles 1st.
Well worth visiting if you’re ever in the area.

Fascinating place to visit as part of the history of Southwell, and to learn about the beginning of the end for Charles the first.

History all around.
Aug 2019
Archbishops Palace in reality is in three parts. The Minster itself, The great Hall and the gardens. The Minster a fantastic Cathedral with beautiful architecture and history is free to enter (donations) and is always worth a good look around. The Great Hall is as described on the box. a Hall. But a lovely Hall it is steeped in history with paintings on the walls of historical figures who were associated with the building. Very impressive and again free. Next to the hall are the gardens a nice pleasant interlude on a busy day. There is a lovely refectory in the grounds with a varied and reasonably inexpensive menu. Veggie and Meaties welcomed. Parking is just outside the Minster and is two hours free BUT still get a ticket. Don`t forget to visit the historic Saracens Head near to the Minster and the National Trust Workhouse.

Beautiful spot but the star is really the gorgeous wildflower garden
Aug 2019
Visited in August on a beautiful sunny day, A lovely peaceful spot where you could imagined the shenanigans and political skullduggery hundreds of years ago where church and kings intertwined. The star of the palace which is a ruin is the beautiful wildflower garden around it filled with butterflies and bees. I could have sat there for hours in the peace and beauty, Whoever is managing these gardens needs a gold star!! Worth a visit anytime.
