Discovering the Bishop of London’s Palace at Fulham

25 May 2019 – present

The first exhibition in our new museum celebrates our recent £3.8 million restoration project, revealing what was involved in this thee year programme to restore and reinterpret our Tudor courtyard and historic rooms and create new beds in the botanic garden.

Find out how the complex restoration project resulted in a richer understanding of the building of Fulham Palace, how the site was used and the people who lived and worked here over the centuries.

Learn about the work carried out by specialist conservators and craftspeople, and the traditional methods they employed to remain faithful to those used at Fulham Palace in the past.

Discover fascinating finds, from artefacts uncovered through archaeology digs to a 17th century painted wall hidden behind plasterboard.

Learn about the vital role our volunteers played in discovering more about Fulham Palace and the Bishops of London through carrying out an extensive archive research project and participating in archaeology digs.


Upcoming exhibitions

The Bishop of London, colonialism and transatlantic slavery

Coming early 2023

The Fulham Palace museum will have an exhibition on the Bishop of London, colonialism and transatlantic slavery, and the systems of physical and spiritual resistance that ultimately led to the ending of the slave trade and slavery itself in the British Empire. The exhibition will include a film featuring the work by Adisa, the project artist, and schools and community groups, work by workshop participants, and a timeline featuring the Bishop of London’s historic involvement in the colonies, transatlantic slavery and emancipation.
