West London creeping a little central within a beautiful Thameside curve, Fulham has a lot of attributes for young professionals and families. With tribal roots at Craven Cottage, home of Fulham FC, close to rivals Chelsea, there is plenty of local history and sense of place. North End Road market dates back to the 19th Century, and with Kings Rd in walking distance, it is hardly the suburban tail end of West London. Plus, house prices are lower than in neighbouring Chelsea and further to the centre. As much of the riverside transforms through development there is a vibrant mix of historical and aspirational London to thrive in. Gentleman & a Van moves people to Fulham every day, and it looks like the housing market in this part of London continues to grow. Here are a few aspects of Fulham we know are appealing about SW6.
