Fulham Palace Road, SW6
Nearest Tube: Putney Bridge
Fulham Palace was the country home of the Bishops of London from the early 8th century, right up until 1973. The oldest part of the present Palace is the 16th century gateway, whilst other parts of the palace date from the 17th and 18th centuries.
The Palace used to be the largest moated site in Europe, until the mile-long moat was filled in the early 20th century.
What does remain, however, are the gardens, which are planted with a wide variety of herbs and rare plants, a collection believed to date back several hundred years.
There is a museum tracing the history of the Palace, which is open Wednesdays to Sundays 2pm-5pm. Admission is around £1 for adults. And on the second Sunday of every month there are guided tours of the Palace available, cost £2.
