Historical Tours

The Bishop moved out in 1975 and now lives near St Paul’s Cathedral. Fulham Palace consists of a Tudor manor house with Georgian additions and Victorian chapel – tours visit all areas open to the public and explore this rich history.

Tours begin outdoors with the history of the building and the gardens (weather permitting). Once inside, the group moves through the Great Hall, Victorian Chapel, Bishop Terrick Drawing and Dining Rooms, Bishop Sherlock’s Room and concludes in the two Museum rooms where permanent displays are exhibited. You can purchase a memento of your visit at the Museum shop.

Upcoming dates are: Sunday November 11, Tuesday November 20, Sunday November 25 and Sunday December 9.

Tickets £5 per person (Associates and accompanied children free), booking is not required.
Meet 2pm in the museum.

Garden Walks

The gardens of Fulham Palace have a long history and are home to an array of interesting and unusual trees. They have been famous since the days of Bishop Grindal, who sent grapes to Elizabeth I, and were largely influenced by Bishop Compton, a great collector of plants.

Learn about the trees and how they came to be here, view the new vinery and hear about the progress so far and the future plans for the historic kitchen garden.

Upcoming dates are:  Saturday November 17 and Sunday December 2.

Tickets £5 per person (Associates and accompanied children free), booking is not required.
Meet 2pm in the museum.
