Riverstone Fulham

Neighbourhood guide

There are a whole host of reasons why Fulham is such a highly sought-after neighbourhood, and the area is packed with shops, bars, boutiques and restaurants.

Fulham is also blessed with lovely green spots, and riverside walks: it’s a leafy destination, and a popular choice for people of all ages. Adjacent Parsons Green is also widely viewed as one of London’s most desirable residential locations, with an enviable lifestyle offering to match.

Situated on the north bank of the Thames, the area’s connectivity is superb. While nestled alongside enticing Chelsea, and within easy reach of the West End, it also affords easy access both north and south of the River, and to areas outside of London too. The local rail links are complemented by Thames Clipper services which provide a pleasant journey to and from the City, particularly in the evening.

For residents, for their families and for the visitors alike Fulham’s broad appeal really does have something for everyone.
