We’re just £145,000 away from reaching our target!

2018 is set to be an exciting and transformational year for Fulham Palace as the restoration project gets underway. The Palace has sat at the heart of Fulham for thousands of years and our project, ‘Discovering the Bishop of London’s Palace at Fulham’, will restore the iconic Tudor Quadrangle; see key historic rooms furnished and dressed including the Great Hall; improve access to the botanical gardens and replant historic varieties of plants. Several portraits from our collection have already been taken away for conservation work, including: Portrait of Bishop John King, attributed to Rowland Lockey, Portrait of George I, after Kneller, Queen Mary and Henry VII. These paintings will be conserved over the next 6-9 months ready for display.

Sykes & Son Limited  has been appointed as the Contractor for the main capital works and will begin work to the north side of the Tudor Quadrangle at the end of February. Sykes & Son will also oversee the brickwork repairs which are scheduled to start in March.

Thanks to the support from our local community, along with a number of trusts and foundations, we have raised over £1.5 million in matched funding. We are now just £145,000 away from reaching our matched funding target! Thanks to each and every one of you who has helped us to achieve this.
