You don't actually have to be a Bishop to come here!

Location: Bishop's Avenue, Hammersmith and Fulham, SW6 6SX

Description: This long strip of parkland running alongside the Thames with views over the river towards Putney gets its name from the former resident of Fulham Palace which lies within the park... 'Bishops Park'.

Traditionally the summer home of the Bishops of London, Fulham Palace is certainly worth a visit. The lawn area in front of the old house which includes a 500 year old evergreen oak is particularly attractive and a very popular spot with families on a summer's day.

Just beyond is a delightful walled garden with orchard and ancient though slightly dilapidated herb garden. The park also has another famous resident; Craven Cottage is home of Fulham Football Club and every match day the park and surrounding streets get clogged with football fans. The sports action doesn't stop there, you can also go bowling or choose one of the 15 tennis courts in the park - the largest concentration of courts in the borough.

So remember, you don't actually have to be a Bishop to come here!
