The residence of the Bishops of London for over 12 centuries, Fulham Palace completed a major restoration project in 2019 and now houses a brand-new museum charting the social and archaeological history of the site.

The building dates between the 15th and 20th centuries and includes a newly restored Tudor courtyard and great hall, a Victorian chapel and Georgian and Gothic additions.

Discover how people lived, worked and played at the palace through immersive displays in the museum and historic rooms, including a sensory room and the opportunity to get hands-on with Bishop Compton’s famous collection of exotic plants. Ongoing archaeological digs on the site have unearthed objects dating from the Neolithic period to the modern day and include evidence of Roman settlers, Saxon squatters and Viking invaders.

For a haven of peace, head out to the 13-acre botanic garden with its stunning plantings, rare trees and beautiful walled garden. The ancient evergreen oak is estimated to be at least 450 years old and is a Great Tree of London. It may have been planted by Bishop Grindal (1559-1570), who sent grapes grown at the palace to Elizabeth I each year.

Fulham Palace also runs an exciting programme of temporary exhibitions in the newly created gallery space.

Look out for The Wild Escape at museums and galleries in the next few months. Many have special events, or you can use our audio introduction to help children get involved at any cultural venue.
