The archbishop is a member ex officio of the House of Lords, and is styled "Primate of England." (The Archbishop of Canterbury is "Primate of All England".)

His throne is in York Minster in central York and his official residence is Bishopthorpe Palace in the village of Bishopthorpe, outside York.
