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).

Blitzed at the Palace
- 27 October 2017 6:20-10pm
A heady evening of vintage cocktails, swing dancing, live music and performance. Don your gladrags and prepare for the blackout as we blast our way back to the 1940s for this Museums at Night! Purveyors of artisan gin Sacred Spirits will be tickling tastebuds with vintage cocktail tastings, whilst Swing Patrol teach you to get those feet tapping and the spellbinding sounds of the Night and Day Collective beat a rhythm in the Great Hall.
Elsewhere in the Palace you can stock up on scrumptious rations and raise a toast in the bar, accessorise with authentic furs, hats and finery in our pop-up photo booth and prepare to run for cover as the sirens blare during our air raid experience.
£15.50, includes cocktail tasting
