Fulham Palace, London

4.1
#35 of 185 in Parks in London
The site of Fulham Palace was occupied during the Neolithic, Iron Age and Roman periods, probably because of its location next to an important Thames crossing. From medieval times or earlier the site was encircled by the longest domestic moat in England. You can see part of the moat as you enter and walk across the bridge at the main entrance of the site.

Since 704 AD Fulham Palace has been the property of the Bishops of London. Fulham Palace was the summer home of the bishops. Each bishop had many homes: in the 16th century there were 177 homes for 21 English bishops! This is an indication of the status of bishops in British life.

The last bishop to live at the Palace moved out in 1973.

Today Fulham Palace is run by Fulham Palace Trust, a registered charity, established in 2011. There is a wealth of things to see and do, from exploring the museum that charts the Palace’s eventful history to having lunch in the Drawing Room Café that looks out onto the beautiful gardens, including the recently restored 18th century Walled Garden.

Admission to the Palace and its gardens is free of charge (except for special tours and events). The Palace is available to hire as a stunning venue for weddings, private and corporate events.

  • From this place, which luckily the entrance is free, the only highlight the truth is the gardens, to spend some time picnicking, lying down, chatting, walking around a little, taking some pictures and ready. He's got a tiny museum. There is also a café with all expensive (normal prices of London) where there is WIFI. There's not much more to say. I only recommend going if you have plenty of time, they walk around the area and have nothing better to do.
