Fulham is an extremely popular area of southwest London, close to the Thames and just a short tube ride from the centre.
Fulham in southwest London is a really desirable part of the capital in which to live, nestled on the north bank of the Thames, just across the river from Putney. It’s got some of the pleasant riverside feel of Richmond and Teddington a bit further out – although is correspondingly busier – and is that crucial bit closer to the centre, making it perfect for business travellers coming to stay in serviced apartments in Fulham.
Yet, Fulham’s reputation was not always such a pleasant one. In fact, in the 18th century it was known as a centre for drunkenness, gambling and debauchery. Even in the mid-20th century, Fulham was a staunchly ‘working class’ part of the city. However, sometime between then and now, there has been a process of gentrification which has helped to make modern day Fulham one of London’s more expensive areas. This can be seen in the eating-out options in the area, which are consistently more refined than in many other places.
Business travellers coming to use Fulham serviced apartments will find it easy to reach. There are three District Line stations in Fulham, leaving the area well covered in that respect. Putney Bridge connects Fulham and Putney High Streets across the river towards the western side of the district, while Wandsworth Bridge Road crosses the Thames to the east.
Finally, it wouldn’t be right talking about Fulham without mentioning the fact that this one area of London is home to two of its most famous football clubs: Fulham at Craven Cottage, next to the river, and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, close to Fulham Broadway tube station
