A guide to SW6

Get to know Fulham, the first postcode we’ve launched in.

Location

Fulham is just between Chelsea and Putney and within the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. It’s near to Sloane Square, Knightsbridge and it sits on the Thames.

Transport

It’s on the Wimbledon branch of the District line. Most people will live near Parson’s Green, Putney Bridge or Fulham Broadway. Or you can travel via Imperial Wharf and West Brompton, which are on the Overground. If you prefer the bus, the main routes are the 14, 22, 211 and the 414.

History

Nowadays Fulham has a reputation for being an affluent and desirable postcode with a village feel, but in the 1700s it was quite the opposite. In fact, it was the centre of debauchery for the elite.

 

Property

Fulham has a strong property market – with house prices rising and demand increasing, it’s a great time for homeowners to sell. Edwardian and Victorian homes intermingle with the ever-growing number of newer builds. Many of the period properties boast breathtaking conversions, high ceilings, and original features. It is not just the property that pulls people to the area but also the incredible schools and village atmosphere. There are two French schools for international students (L’ècole des petits and the lycée for the older students) alongside Fulham Primary, Lady Margaret School for girls and Fulham Prep School.

Going Out

You’ll quickly discover that Fulham has a lot to offer when it comes to good food – there are 2 Michelin starred restaurants, the Riverside Café and the Harwood Arms. Other top eateries include Claude’s Kitchen and Blue Elephant. Where pubs are concerned, you’re spoilt for choice. The White Horse and the Duke on the Green are just two of many popular pubs in the area.

Attractions 

Fulham Palace and the Hurlingham Club are two of the main attractions in the area. Others include visiting one of the many exquisite shops in the area or taking a stroll along the Thames or in one of the many green spaces. You might even want to go to a football match – Fulham F.C. is actually the oldest professional football team in London.
