Fulham Palace is planning a range of activities over the Christmas period.

The Fulham Palace Christmas fair returns for a second year on Saturday 27 November and Sunday 28 November with over 60 stalls of fine foods and gifts. From jewellery and accessories to home goods, fragrances and spirits, there’s something for everyone! The museum shop will also have festive decorations and gifts, with every purchase helping to support the Palace. There will also be swing boats, face painting, and children's crafts. There will be carol performances each morning and afternoon with support from All Saints Fulham Junior & Adult Choirs, the London Youth Conservatoire, Larmenier & Sacred Heart Primary School and the Fulham & Hammersmith Choral Society. Tickets £5 adult and £3 per child, booking recommended.

Father Christmas has flown into Fulham and will be enjoying the Palace’s library from Friday 26 November to Sunday 28 November. Children can tell Father Christmas what they would like for Christmas, post a letter to the North Pole, and all will receive an early gift from Father Christmas. Children can also enjoy festive crafts while they wait in one of the Palace’s historic rooms. Tickets £25 per child, booking essential.

The Palace at Christmas tours begin on Wednesday 1 December in which you can explore the festively decorated Palace on this expert-led tour. Discover Christmas traditions passed down through the ages and how the Bishops and their families celebrated the festive season while in residence at the Palace. Tickets £8, booking essential.
