Nestled in a bend in the river, Fulham is home to some of London’s most expensive addresses. For any “Made in Chelsea” wannabes, Fulham provides the perfect area to live. However, the mere mortals amongst us, may find ourselves unable to afford the vicinity’s astronomical property prices. Thankfully, Springboard Fulham is on hand to provide a friendly, affordable alternative, to taking on the London property market allowing young professionals to live in one of the city’s most coveted areas for an all-inclusive, moderate, monthly fee.
Fulham knows how to party, a sentiment which dates back to the 1700s when it was a renowned location for debauchery. Present day Fulham, could not however, be any further removed from this. An upmarket location, filled with picturesque, leafy, residential streets and overflowing with bars, restaurants and boutique shops. Particular restaurant recommendations for Springboard Fulham residents include The Brown Cow gastro pub (which is perfect for brunch), The Blue Elephant Thai restaurant and the award winning Harwood Arms and Malt House. If drinks (in particular beers) are more your thing, I recommend the Mitre Pub on Dawes Road.
Fulham is a vibrant area with a variety of amenities, and something to suit most tastes. This even extends to supermarkets where residents have the luxury of being able to pick between Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Tesco, Budgens and the Co-op! A number of local farmer’s markets also exist, including one at Parson’s Green and Bishop’s Park.
Fulham is remarkable for its green open space and the opportunities it provides for a picturesque stroll along the river. Walking along the Putney to Richmond path is particularly popular and provides fantastic views of the Thames, as well as a number of the areas other attractions, including Fulham Place and Craven Cottage, home of Fulham football club. Whilst Fulham’s stadium is unique, if it’s high class football you’re after, head down the road to Stamford Bridge, the ground of Fulham’s local rivals and regular Premier League Champion contenders, Chelsea.
Other outdoor areas of interest include, Bishop’s Park which has a variety of beautiful gardens, a manmade urban beach, and hosts Park Run, a 5km race at 9am each Saturday. It attracts a vast and varied crowd from local football fans on the way to a game, to tourists absorbing the splendour of Fulham Palace. Whilst open space is plentiful, being in England, we must always cater for a rainy day! And when the heaven’s open in Fulham residents can take advantage of the Fulham Broadway Shopping Centre which offers a variety of shops, and restaurants and houses a 9 screen cinema and health club.
