We decided to base ourselves in a different area of London this time, and we’re very glad we choose the Fulham-Broadway area to rent an apartment for 8 nights. This is definitely a Londoners neighbourhood. North End and Fulham Road are full of various small restaurants, shops, grocery stores, banks, and other amenities. The area is well serviced by bus and tube. North End Rd has an open market along part of its length. Loads of fresh veg and fruit stalls. Very multicultural neighbourhood. Loved staying here - felt very safe at all times.
The historic name for this area is Walham Green, although little more than St John's church survives from before the coming of the District Railway, but one streetname, Farm Lane harks back to its former rural past.
Thank you Marco! That’s very interesting information to know. Each neighbourhood has such a depth of history and change.
We are heading there next week and are staying in Fulham Broadway as well! We stayed in Hammersmith last time which we loved but wanted to try a different area this time. We rent flats through Homeaway and pick locations close to tube stops. Thanks for the recommendation!
Dkasdras - we did all our main shopping at Waitrose. Also a Whole Foods nearby and Sainsbury in the tube stop. Several little coffee/patisseries nearby, fish shop, butchers, banks. Loved eating at a Greek/Italian restaurant on Vanston Pl called Al Santo. The Malt House next door is a good gastro pub. Have fun!
