For centuries Fulham Palace was the country residence of the Bishop of London, Lord of the Manor of Fulham, and in the last century became his only home.

Historical Tours

The Bishop moved out in 1975 and now lives near St Paul’s Cathedral. Fulham Palace consists of a Tudor manor house with Georgian additions and Victorian chapel – our tours visit all areas open to the public and explore this rich history.

Tours begin outdoors with the history of the building and the gardens (weather permitting). Once inside, the group moves through the Great Hall, Victorian Chapel, Bishop Terrick Drawing and Dining Rooms, Bishop Sherlock’s Room and concludes in the two Museum rooms where permanent displays are exhibited. You can purchase a memento of your visit at the Museum shop.

Regular tours take place throughout the year. Visit our What’s On page for upcoming tour dates and times.

Tickets £6 per person (accompanied children free), booking is not required.
Meet in the museum shop.

Taster Talks

Our free 10 minute Taster Talks take place at 2pm each day our Museum is open and a Historical Tour is not taking place.   These short talks are a brief introduction to our site and take place in either our Tudor Courtyard or Great Hall.  Meet in reception.
