Fulham Area Guide

Guide to Fulham

Located in West London, Fulham is home to some of the most beautiful and expensive houses of London. Sitting nicely between Chelsea and Putney and neighbouring Sloane Square and Knightsbridge it is definitely a well-surrounded area. Another pleasant addition to Fulham is that it is cosily nested in a bend of the River Thames, offering many possibilities for beautiful riverside walks and terraces with a view.

Fulham is located in zone 2 and has 3 stops on the District Line: Fulham Broadway, Parsons Green and Putney Bridge. The location is very convenient, from there you can reach central London in only 20 minutes. The area is also very well connected in terms of buses, the bus routes 11, 14 and 295 and all head towards central London. You won’t feel isolated in Fulham that’s for sure!

Fulham is a lovely residential area, a place for many beautiful walks such as the Thames Path /Riverside Walk, offering beautiful views of the river, or just generally around the neighbourhoods. Perfect if you’re a runner!

Fulham Road is also known for its vast range of shops from independent artisan to high-end designers, with the short parade of Antique shops at the south end of Lillie Road Fulham Palace is a lovely Sunday afternoon destination.

The White Horse will never disappoint the beer lovers. Each week they have large varieties of local and international beers and the staff are really good at explaining them all and recommending something for everyone’s taste. It offers a bustling crowd at the weekends and weather permitting a BBQ on the outside terrace.
