The walled garden

Our walled garden is an urban oasis. Behind the high brick walls are 3.5 acres of beautiful plants, fruit trees, bee hives and open spaces.

The walled garden dates to the mid-18th century when Bishop Terrick redesigned much of Fulham Palace’s landscape. Reopened in 2012 after an extensive restoration, it includes a knot garden, vinery, kitchen garden, apple orchard, apple tree arch, bee hives, grass lawns and borders along the walls filled with flowers and fruit trees.

Plantings are chosen carefully to reflect the horticultural history of the Palace. The apple varieties in the orchard celebrate Fulham Palace’s North American botanical connections. The knot garden has a planting colour scheme of red, blue and yellow, reflecting the colours in the coat of arms of Bishop Blomfield, who originally designed the garden in the 1830s.

The walled garden is not just for display — our organic produce, honey and a selection of plants and cut flowers are sold on our restored market barrow. Open Mondays: 10.30 – 15.30 (honestly box only), Tuesdays to Sundays: 10.30 – 15.30 (volunteer run and honesty box). All proceeds go to the ongoing maintenance and restoration of the garden and bee hives.
