For the first time in a long, long time August bank holiday weekend is approaching with a sense of freedom and excitement that is long overdue. London will be in full summer swing, and everywhere from al fresco terraces to pub gardens to parks packed with picnickers will be hoping for three days of fun and a few rays of sun. Fulham locals and visitors alike will be making the most of the area’s many attractions, turning the traditional bank holiday break into an impromptu mini staycation! Here is some of the best of what the borough has to offer.
Vacation like the Victorians with guided tours of the grounds, pack a picnic, and enjoy beautiful and delicious baked treats from the café – all while secluded and away from the usual London hustle and bustle.
Eel Brook Common
Wide open and with plenty of room for activities, make use of the space for family fun at the playground, getting sporty with some friends, or simply enjoying the peace and greenery alone.
A West London institution, go up-market and treat yourself to stunning Italian food at the birthplace of the careers of the likes of Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
Thames pub and walk
Nothing says summer bank holiday like a relaxed walk along some of the most picturesque parts of the Thames, with the promise of plenty of pit-stops for refreshment along the way. We recommend Fulham favourites The Blue Boat, The Crabtree and The Eight Bells.
