Fulham

Fancy Fulham is in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, flanked by upmarket Kensington & Chelsea. And while it shares its neighbour’s gorgeous terraced townhouses and designer shopping, this pocket of West London is edgier and more affordable. Set on the north bank of the River Thames, Fulham is a slower-paced slice of the city, where residents enjoy leafy walks and cosy roasts in authentic boozers. It’s a peaceful haven for professionals, and a great launchpad for commuting. Nearby Hammersmith, for example, is the HQ of major corporations like Disney and L’Oréal. Read on to discover developments that are the best places to live in Fulham. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in Fulham.

Things to do in Fulham

Fulham brags one of London’s best-looking after-dark scenes, with immaculate, bloom-cloaked gastropubs and also chic wine bars. The adjacent Hammersmith area has great live music venues, which welcome a mix of well-known and up-and-coming artists. The most iconic is undoubtedly the Apollo, an entertainment institution that’s welcomed everyone from Paul Weller to Russell Brand to its stage.

Shopping in SW6 is a major pastime. Fulham has a handful of shopping centres, including Fulham Broadway and Kings Mall. There’s no competing with nearby Westfields, though – this colossal Shepherds Bush mall has around 250 classic department stores, high street brands and designer boutiques. Alternatively, there’s pretty Brackenbury Village for established independents with character.

Elsewhere, Fulham boasts top private schools and plentiful parkland. A family favourite is Bishops Park, which counts tennis courts, a sculpture garden and a man-made beach among its facilities. Nearby Hammersmith’s waterfront Furnivall Gardens is another popular spot – especially for picnics and sunbathing in the summer months.

Property in Fulham

Lillie Square, a Capital and Counties Properties project with 800 units, provides a brilliant variety of floorplans, including studios, one to three-bed apartments, swish penthouse and also family townhouses.

The handover quality of the apartment is by far best in the league. The clubhouse is extraordinary, beautiful indoor swimming pool and great staff.” – LPPY, verified resident of Lillie Square

The development itself feels “hotel luxury standard” in terms of the exterior design and high-quality interior fit out specification. For me the Clubhouse with wi-fi/coffee areas/gym/pool/cinema/treatment rooms & private dinning set Lillie Square apart from anything else that I have seen. My 2-year-old daughter loves the pool and baby play areas when the weather doesn’t allow us to explore outside, which is lifesaving sometimes!” – Ben Sturnham, owner at Lillie Square

Chelsea FC fans should consider Brompton Park Crescent, a Barratt Homes property just five minutes’ walk from Stamford Bridge. This gated development features stylish apartments with a more traditional exterior, characterised by beautiful wrought-iron balconies. Rated one of the best places to live in Fulham.

“The build quality is really good, walls are built well so I can hang pictures and place multiple wardrobes around, I also like the design of the property it looks really neat.” – Anon, private tenant of Brompton Park Crescent

Even more…

Also flaunting a less contemporary façade is Bishops Gate,  58-unit property from Meyer Homes, with a central location on Fulham High Street. Rated a great place to rent in Fulham.

I’m really happy with my flat! It’s exceeded my expectations as its been built with high standards. Staff and building management are great, they deal with issues quickly and properly. The flat is big enough and has been fitted with high quality appliances.” – Anon, verified resident at Bishops Gate

Those drawn to waterside living should look to Chelsea Creek, a well thought-out development by St George, with a series of creeks flowing through its centre. It’s home to studios, apartments and also penthouses just a stone’s throw from glamorous King’s Road.

Getting around London

Fulham is extremely well located. It’s serviced by three tube stations, which are all on the District line. To give you an idea of what’s where; you can reach Piccadilly Circus from here in 16 minutes, Victoria in 20, and Kings Cross in 24. Residents are also really close to the A4 and M4 – ideal for when it’s time to escape the capital.

Brompton Road great variety of coffee shops, restaurants, bars & fast car garages!
Fulham is similar with a family friendly vibe.
Transport links you can get anywhere quickly.
There is a lot of construction underway.

Please review your development:

Lillie Square in the Earls Court development, is a fantastic location to live for a variety of reasons. The connectivity of the area is superb with Brompton Station less than 2 minutes away and Earls Court a little further, making any part of London easily accessible. As a working London professional my morning commute into Mayfair is 18 minutes door to door. Outside of this the amenities and attractions of South Kensington and Parsons Green are all within a short walk.

The development itself feels “hotel luxury standard” in terms of the exterior design and high-quality interior fit out specification. For me the Clubhouse with wi-fi/coffee areas/gym/pool/cinema/treatment rooms & private dinning set Lillie Square apart from anything else that I have seen. My 2 year old daughter loves the pool and baby play areas when the weather doesn’t allow us to explore outside, which is lifesaving sometimes!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

My only comment would be to emphasise the care that the bathroom natural stone requires in terms of sealing and cleaning

It’s a regeneration area so still lots of things going around.

Please review your development:

It’s one of the best product I’ve seen and bought, both the building quality and design is explicit. The handover quality of the apartment is by far best in the league. The clubhouse is extraordinary, beautiful indoor swimming pool and great staff.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I bought a single bedroom apartment which I will rent out until i return to the UK. The overall quality and standard of finish is of exceptional quality.
I rented out the apartment within a week of possession being taken and has since successfully rented it out without any gap.
The club house is superb and has all the facilities are brilliant.
