Museum of Fulham Palace

Bishops Avenue
Greater London

The Museum of Fulham Palace tells the story of Fulham Palace, which is a Grade 1 listed historic building. The estate was owned by the Bishops of London for over 1200 years and the Palace was their country home from at least the 11th century, until the 1970s.

The building is a fascinating mixture of architectural styles including Tudor, Georgian and Victorian, and sits in lovely grounds including a great lawn and historic gardens. Visitors can view the major historic rooms on the ground floor, including the Great Hall, Chapel, Bishop Sherlock's room, Bishop Howley's Dining Room and the Porteus Library.

The Museum's collections include paintings, archaeology and artefacts related to the estate and the local area, some dating back to Roman times.

The cafe is located in a former drawing room and is open seven days a week.

A gallery presents periodic exhibits of contemporary art.

Guided tours of the Palace take place three times monthly, and tours of the gardens are offered twice monthly. Please see the website for details.

The summer exhibition, "Japan in London: the Japan-British Exhibition of 1910", is open during Museum opening hours and runs through 19 September 2010. Admission is free.
