Bishop’s Palace was located on the north-west side of St. Paul’s Church. It was bordered on the north by Paternoster Row and on the west by Ave Maria Lane (Harben). It is not labelled on the Agas map.
According to Stow, the palace was a large thing for receipt, wherein diuers kinges have been lodged, and great housholde hath been kept (Stow 2:20). One of these diverse Kings was Henry VII, who in the seauenteenth of his rainge stayed at Bishop’s Palace with Queen Elizabeth (Stow 1:67). Clergyman and historian Peter Heylyn writes that in 1551 the Queen Regent of Scotland travelled through London, stopping at Bishop’s Palace (sig. Q1r). Upon arriving, she was presented with Mutton, Beefs, Veals, Poultry, Wine, and all other ſorts of Proviſions, neceſſary for Her Entertainment (sig. Q1r).
Few literary texts reference Bishop’s Palace. Sugden lists two references: In True Tragedy the messenger informs Q. that her son remains at Lond. in the B.P.. Milton, in Areopagitica, [...] pours scorn on a lordly Imprimatur . . . from the W. end of Pauls.. (Sugden 62).
Bishop’s Palace no longer exists in modern London.
