Fulham Palace is a truly remarkable place. For centuries, this Grade I Listed building, situated in extensive grounds by the River Thames, was a country residence of the Bishops of London. The last bishop to live at Fulham Palace moved out in 1973, and today, Fulham Palace is managed by the Fulham Palace Trust. Fulham Palace has 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).
