住在富勒姆: 运输环节, 停车处, 学校, 最好的街道 - 和月租金的平均成本


Nestled in a bend of the Thames, leafy Fulham’s peaceful atmosphere belies its surprisingly central location.

In part due to the hopelessness of the trundling District line, the area can feel a little cut off from buzzier parts of London.

It is ideal for working parents, who can install the children in one of the top local private schools and have a reasonable commute themselves.

It’s also popular with an international crowd who may not be able to afford to upsize in more familiar South Kensington or Chelsea but want to stay within easy reach.

谁住在这里?

Fulham attracts a real mix of people at different life stages, from young professionals straight out of university to older downsizing couples who like the spacious Victorian terrace homes.

“We also have a lot of French people because we’ve got one of the best French schools in London here,” says Georgia Nicholl, local Winkworth lettings manager.

Best Fulham streets to live on

Renters in Fulham like to live as close as possible to the Tube, even though it can get busy, according to Georgia Nicholl, lettings manager at Winkworth in Fulham.

She says Musgrove Crescent is one of the best streets near Fulham Broadway because it overlooks Eel Brook Common, making it more peaceful.

最好的学校在富勒姆

There are many independent schools in the area, but Melcombe Primary School, St Augustine’s RC Primary School and St Paul’s CofE Primary School are among state options rated “outstanding” by Ofsted.

超市和食品市场在富勒姆

Branches of Whole Foods, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s are clustered close to Fulham Broadway station and there’s a selection of local convenience stores, including a Co-op, on Munster Road.

缺点?

“The biggest downside is probably the District line, which can be a bit slow,” says Nicholl.

“People also complain about being under the Heathrow flight path, which means there is plane noise to contend with from about 5am — but as everyone says, and it’s true, you do get used to it,”她补充道.

‘My flat’s a nice slice of peace in the city

Peaceful pad: James Peterson pays £880 a month to share a Fulham mansion flat (阿德里安 Lourie)

A new job in a different part of London prompted digital designer James Peterson’s latest home move.

He was able to take advantage of the flexibility of renting, cutting his commute from over an hour on the Tube from north London to just half an hour on foot to his office in Kensington.

The 29-year-old now shares a mansion flat in Fulham with a lawyer and an accountant, his friends since schooldays. They pay £880 per month each, 包括票据.

“I didn’t know the area at all before I moved here. Living in Fulham’s a bit of a change from north London,” says James. “It’s slightly sleepier.

“Finsbury Park, where I was living before, had a real diversity and a constant feeling of buzz, whereas west London is slower paced.”

James reckons he’s slightly less well connected now than he was on the Victoria line, but he appreciates being able to avoid public transport altogether for many journeys.

“Since living here I’ve definitely done a lot more walking. Sometimes I walk to central London, either through Hyde Park or via South Kensington and the museums. It’s a nice stroll. My flat is like a nice slice of peace within London.”

富勒姆交通连接和可访问性

James moved to west London to be closer to work so now he walks to his office in Kensington. West Kensington, Fulham Broadway and Barons Court Underground stations, for the District and Piccadilly lines, and West Brompton on the Overground, are all a stone’s throw away.

在富勒姆购物

“There’s some quite basic stuff in Fulham but it’s not exactly a shopping Mecca,” says James. “If you want to maximise your shopping you can walk to the Westfield mall at White City within half an hour.”

吃和在富勒姆喝

“If you go north, south, east or west from my flat you get a pretty nice pub with a slightly different feel,” says James.

He and his housemates head to The Colton Arms, The Curtains Up, The Rylston or The Pear Tree depending on their mood.

James also recommends Bite Café for relaxed breakfasts, Best Mangal for a post-pub kebab and Market Hall in Fulham Road for street food and half-price beers on a Tuesday.

文化富勒姆

There’s a Vue cinema at Fulham Broadway while Fulham Palace next to the river has cultural exhibits in a historic building with beautiful grounds.

Green space in Fulham

James’s mansion block complex has a tennis court in the grounds for residents.

Eel Brook Common is nearby where James plays tag rugby and Normand Park is also close.
