Fulham is an area in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, in southwest London.
It is an inner Londondistrict located 3.7 miles south-west of Charing Cross. It lies on the north bank of the River Thames, between Putney andChelsea. The area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London.
Fulham is today a green London area within very close reach of many famously extravagant places such as Chelsea and Kensington; this is reflected in the high local house prices. It was included within Savills' 2007 list of "prime" London areas. Two football clubs, Fulham and Chelsea, are situated within Fulham.
