Fulham Palace was built in the 11th century as the country home for the Bishops of London. It stands next to Bishop's Park and Putney Bridge on ground near to the River Thames. The estate was owned by the Bishops of London for about 1300 years, being granted to Waldhere, Bishop of London in 704 AD. The bishops vacated Fulham Palace in 1975.

Today, Fulham Palace is open to the public, free of charge. Within the palace are the great hall, a museum, art galleries, palace shop and cafe. The palace is set in large grounds, within which is a walled garden containing solar powered sculptures and an extensive botanic garden. Also within the palace is the Tait Chapel, adorned with various paintings of biblical scenes.

The earliest part of Fulham Palace is the Great Hall around the quad, built in 1480 with a timber roof. This is obscured by an 18th century ceiling, added when the hall and dining room were re-modelled. Further changes happened over the next hundred years, and the Tait Chapel was added in 1867.

Fulham Palace has undergone extensive renovations recently and excavation work has revealed a variety of artifacts from past times. These are on display in the museum room. Various parts of the palace are available for hire. Entrance to the palace is free.
