Pictures of Fulham
Not many places are blest with two famous football clubs, but lively vibrant Fulham, an area of London is one. It is the home to both Fulham Football Club and Chelsea, both play at Premiership level, thus some of the football's most talented and highly paid stars can often be spotted strolling along Fulham's streets.
The area lies around 6 miles from the centre of the City of London, it is located close to the River Thames and is known for its diversity of culture. There is a good nightlife scene with plenty of entertainment going on in the areas pubs. The Pear Tree, The Margravine and The Eight Bells in Fulham High Street are amongst the more traditional inns, whilst places like The Crabtree and The Mitre on Fulham Road cater for the regions thriving young professionals.
Fulham is very suburban in character, it is mainly the domain of middle-class working professionals who like the region for its wide open spaces and parks, plus the bonus of its easy exit to the country. The region has a number of churches, it was formerly the seat of the Bishop of London who occupied Fulham Palace. The grounds of Fulham Palace have since become an interesting botanical garden, whilst the palace is now a museum.
Actor Leslie Grantham lived in Fulham, and the young actor Daniel Radcliffe (of Harry Potter fame) was born in Fulham in July 1989. Other celebrated residents include John Lydon who was born in the middle of the 20th century and who was otherwise known as Johnny Rotten, and from the 19th century William Archibald Spooner, Anglican priest and Scholar (1844-1930).
Fulham Broadway is a busy shopping centre with attractive, colourful shops. On the bustling North End Road a noisy outdoor market is often in operation and in handsome Vanston Place, old buildings mingle with those of a newer build. Along the various streets visitors will find evidence of good architecture, particularly the Old Broadway Station Entrance which is now Friday's bar. Behind black painted railings is the impressive building belonging to the Sir Oswald Stoll Foundation, this provides housing for disabled and able ex-service men and women.
Fulham is a pleasant place to explore, it stands on a loop of the River Thames along which can be found the famous River Cafe, renowned for its Italian cuisine. The restaurant, owned by chefs Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers, provided a noted training ground for T.V celebrity chefs, such as Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
