External tour operators
External tour operators
We recommend you take a tour with one of our knowledgeable and highly trained tour guides who have a vast knowledge of the history of the Palace. We run public tours every week and groups can book a private tour by emailing email@example.com. Tours led by Fulham Palace guides get priority in the Palace; if you are leading a tour as an external tour operator we ask that you inform the Palace at least two weeks in advance. If you do not let the Palace know in advance then we cannot guarantee your group entry to all museum rooms or historic spaces. Entry to the Palace is free, but as a charity we request a donation of £2 per person attending a tour led by an external tour operator to support our work.
Fulham Palace is in west London beside the River Thames, next to Putney Bridge. We’re easily accessible by both public transport and coach. Plan your group’s journey.
