Fulham SW6

SW6 IS BEST FOR: Smart, handsome Fulham is a magnet for cash-rich professionals, buy-to-let investors and affluent families looking for luxury. There’s also a French community as there’s a popular lycée nearby.

BRICKS & MORTAR: Amazingly, considering its current highly desirable credentials, Fulham was a debauched playground for London’s rich in the 18th century. Now you’ll find stately tree-lined streets with imposing Victorian mansions and Edwardian terraces. Some of the most premium properties are in the Peterborough Estate, while those who want a river view invest in Imperial Wharf.

HIGH STREET HANGOUTS: There’s a huge variety of shops and restaurants, from commercial to high end. Stop for a pint at The White Horse on Parsons Green (the ‘Sloaney Pony’ to locals), indulge in a Michelin-Starred feast at The Harwood Arms on Waltham Grove, get your fruit and veg from North End Road Market, and buy Emma Bridgewater’s hand-painted pottery on Fulham Road.

SEATS OF LEARNING: Popular primary schools include All Saints, Melcombe and the École Marie D’Orliac (lycée), while secondary schools include Lady Margaret School for girls, and Hurlingham and Chelsea.

COMMUTE: Fulham Broadway, Parsons Green and Putney Bridge are in Zone 2 on the District Line, with journey times of around 20 minutes to the West End.
