Fulham is one of the most sought after areas in London. Close to Chelsea and Kensington and across the Thames from Wandsworth, Fulham is home to great shopping opportunities, beautiful parkland and much loved leisure destinations. Moreover, the character of Fulham is unique among London boroughs, bringing together as it does riverside culture, cosmopolitan energy and a classic elegance which maintains a link to the past.
One of the many great things about Fulham is its proximity to some of London's most exciting destinations. Residents in SW6 can benefit from the glittering retails streets of Sloane Square, the Kings Road and Mayfair, which are a short journey, without the associated steep property prices. This is the key draw factor for Fulham's residents, but don't be fooled into thinking that Fulham itself has nothing to see - SW6 is a destination in itself, with a vibrant high street at Fulham Broadway and charming independent boutique hubs at Parsons Green and Sands End.
This part of the Capital also benefits from being right at the river's edge. Chelsea Harbour
and the area surrounding Imperial Wharf offers riverside walks - and refreshment - alongside beautiful boats and glimmering water. Meanwhile the stretch of the Thames Path running from Hampton Court to Albert Bridge and beyond offers delightful riverside explorations of a different side to London.
Parks and green spaces also punctuate Fulham; the Hurlingham Estate
offers beautifully tended parkland while Eel Brook Common at Fulham Broadway and the Green at Parsons Green offer an antidote to the vibrant streets nearby. This mix of energy and greenery, alongside superb schooling opportunities, goes some way to explaining the popularity of Fulham with families. Another draw is the way which Fulham stylishly brings together elegant period architecture with its modern equivalent without losing its distinctive character - even the busiest parts of Fulham feel resolutely unhurried and quietly dignified.
If you're looking for things to do and see in Fulham you'll be spoilt for choice. The proximity of SW6 to the Thames means that boat clubs, riverside walks and drinks at the wharfside are part of daily life here. There is also plenty to intrigue football fans, with local rivals Chelsea FC
and Fulham FC
in close proximity. The famous Hurlingham Club
offers a unique retreat away from the bustle of London, while the Design Centre
at Chelsea Wharf is perfect to explore if you're interested in quality design.
