Bishop’s Avenue is a cul-de-sac and as such it is difficult for coaches to turn at the entrance to Fulham Palace.  We strongly recommend that coach drivers contact the Palace in advance so that arrangements can be made to permit access to and turning within Fulham Palace’s Stable Yard.  Alternatively, coaches should drive down Bishop’s Park Road and allow passengers to alight at Bishop’s Park and make the short walk through the Park to Fulham Palace’s pedestrian entrance.
