Fulham Palace

News Story

Fulham Palace has been the residence of the Bishops of London since AD 704, and is now a Grade 1 listed building with architecture dating back to the Tudor period.

Over the past 750 years, the house and gardens have been continuously redesigned to appeal to the different tastes of the Bishops residing there. This has left an interesting mix of different architectural styles, which reflect key changes within British design across the centuries.

The red brick Tudor courtyard and great hall are the oldest parts of the building, dating to around 1495. The Palace also includes a Georgian style library, and an elaborate brick and mosaic work chapel built in the 1860s.

The botanic garden is 13 acres of stunning plantings, rare trees and extensive grass lawns. The beautiful walled garden dates back to the mid-18th century, and includes a vinery, apple orchard, bee hives and a kitchen garden.

Fulham Palace has featured in productions including The Miniaturist and the Great British Bake Off.
