Things to do in Fulham with kids

Fulham is a very popular destination for many people visiting and moving to London. This affluent area of London is well known for its Michelin starred restaurants, bars and the ever-popular North End Road market, but what is there to do in Fulham with kids?

Just a short 2 minute walk from Parsons Green tube station is Cuckoo Hibou. A fantastic family-run creative space in Fulham that offers workshops, classes and parties that are suitable for craft loving kids of all ages and their families. If your kids don’t need your help sculpting or painting their next masterpiece, you can relax in their popular coffee shop until they are ready to show you their hard work.

If your family enjoys getting crafty, not only can we recommend Cuckoo Hibou, but the Pottery Cafe on Fulham Road is also well worth a visit. This pottery decorating and painting cafe was one of the first of its kind in the country, having been in the same spot for over twenty years.

The main room at the Pottery Cafe in Fulham seats 50 crafty individuals, so booking is advised especially if you are looking to go at the weekend or in school holidays. There is also a private room available that you can book for a fun-packed birthday party.

If you are looking for something to do in Fulham with kids who are happy to explore and get out and about then a visit to the historic Fulham Palace should be at the top of your list. The gardens at Fulham Palace are beautiful in the summer months and have plenty of historical relevance for the grown-ups and lots of organised activities for younger explorers. Family-friendly activities at the palace include Easter bunny trails, hands-on gardening classes, crafting sessions, open-air theatre and storytelling.

Next to Fulham Palace is Bishops Park, a wide-stretching open green space that is ideal for family picnics and walks with views along the Thames. There is even a small concrete bowl for kids on scooters and skateboards. Bishops Park surrounds the grounds of Fulham Palace and runs from Putney Bridge and along the Thames to Craven Cottage, the home of Fulham Football Club. So, expect the park to be busy on match days.

It is not surprising that Fulham gets busy on Saturdays… it is home to, not just one, but two top-flight football teams – Fulham and Chelsea. The former plays at Craven Cottage, whereas the latter plays at the more lavish and celebrated Stamford Bridge stadium. The stadium tours at Stamford Bridge are exciting and impressive for people of all ages, and you don’t even have to be a football fan to appreciate the spectacle and sheer scale of this very impressive stadium.

Fulham isn’t just about restaurants, trendy bars and lavish houses, there is also plenty to do and explore with kids. If you are thinking of moving to Fulham, click here to find out more about our specialist moving services.
