Fulham... a Remarkable Place
Fulham Palace is over 1300 years old and simply splendid

The estate was owned by the Bishops of London for over 1300 years and the Palace was their country home from at least the 11th century. Vacated by the Bishops in 1975, the Palace is now managed jointly by Hammersmith and Fulham Council and the Fulham Palace Trust.
Today the Palaces stately rooms house an intriguing museum that interprets the sites extraordinary history; a relaxing cafe-bar within a graceful drawing room which overlooks the extensive botanic gardens; and an elegant gallery space that provides an innovative programme of contemporary, Palace-inspired art.
Admission to the Palace and its grounds is free of charge - so go enjoy.
