What to expect when you visit

Fulham Palace’s garden is open to enjoy as usual. However, we’ve changed a few things to keep everyone safe.

We do our best to keep the information here on our website completely up to date, but sometimes that’s not 100% possible. You may find that on the day you visit we’ve had to close something. We hope that doesn’t affect your enjoyment of our beautiful house and garden.

We take the health and safety of our visitors and staff seriously and face coverings are recommended for the protection of yourself and others unless you’re exempt. If you forget your face covering we will be able to provide you with a disposable mask. We also ask that you sanitise your hands upon entering the Palace using the sanitiser provided at the entrance. Please be considerate of others – especially in smaller spaces.
