Historical tours and garden walks

For centuries Fulham Palace was the country residence of the Bishop of London, Lord of the Manor of Fulham, and in the last century became his only home.

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 – our tours visit all areas open to the public and explore this rich history.

Regular tours take place throughout the year including during the restoration project. Please note that during this period some areas may be closed for restoration works – when you book ask for further details of what these will be on your chosen date. See our What’s on page for upcoming tour dates and times.

Tickets £6 per person (accompanied children free), booking is not required.
Meet at reception.

Taster Talks

Our free 10 minute taster talks take place at 2pm on days when the Museum is open and a Historical Tour is not taking place.  Meet in reception to hear a brief introduction to the site and its history.

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.

Tickets £6 per person (accompanied children free), booking is not required. Visit our What’s on page for upcoming tour dates.
Meet at 2pm at reception.
