Fulham is located north of the Thames just west of Chelsea in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham with the postcode SW6. The area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London.

Having been through many transformations in its history, Fulham today is a vibrant and green London area within very close reach of many famously extravagant places such as Chelsea and Kensington and this is reflected in the high local house prices. Two Premier League football clubs, Fulham and Chelsea, are also situated here.

Fulham, with property prices among some of the most expensive in London, has a vast variety of residential options from flats above shops and converted or purpose built flats to terraced houses. There are also a few small apartment blocks close to Fulham Broadway Underground station and on the road into Hammersmith. Some of the most expensive and desirable roads to own a property are around the Hurlingham Club, which is an exclusive members club.

The Fulham area is popular with young professionals who love the new riverside apartments, through to families and buy to let investors.

Brief history of Fulham

Fulham, or in its earliest form "Fullanham", is uncertainly stated to signify "the place" either "of fowls" or "of mud" (which probably had a lot to do with the fact that the River Thames would flood it periodically), or alternatively, "land in the crook of a river bend belonging to a man named Fulla".

During the 18th century had a reputation of debauchery, becoming a sort of "Las Vegas retreat" for the wealthy of London. Fulham remained a working class area for the first half of the twentieth century, but was subject to extensive restoration between the Second World War and the 1980's.

Today, Fulham is one of the most expensive parts of London.
