Fulham Palace Garden

The former home of the Bishop's of London. Fulham Palace gardens were famous in the seventeenth century. The Register of Historic Gardens records that 'The pleasure grounds are largely laid to grass and decorated with specimen trees and shrubs, some of them mature'. The palace buildings form a courtyard and there is a classic Victorian garden outside this space, with lawns, mature trees and flowers. The old walled vegetable garden has been re-designed with an Arts and Crafts character. Beech hedges screen part of the north-east and south-east sides of the Palace while further to the north-east a yew hedge provides the boundary between the pleasure grounds and the Warren. Bishop's Park to the south-west is screened by dense vegetation planted along the line of the moat. Facing the Palace, from across the c 1ha south-east lawn.
