In pictures: Fulham Palace
Fulham Palace was home to the Bishops of London from around the 11th century until 1975. Once a summer retreat for over 100 bishops it is now open free to the public.
Fulham Palace courtyard. As Lord of the Manor, the medieval bishops were responsible for law and order. The surviving building dates from 1495 and is Grade One Listed.
The herb garden in the palace grounds. The walled garden was enclosed in the 1760s to form a kitchen garden. The box hedges were laid out in the 1830s and the herbs seen today include Rosemary, Tansy and Lemon Balm.
The site of the old moat measuring 1.4km long. It was once the largest in Europe. There are plans to partly restore the moat if a bid for funding is successful. Part of the moat has recently been excavated.
The sluice gate uncovered by archaeologists. It was part of the medieval moat that some historians claim is older still, perhaps having origins as part of an Iron Age earthwork.

The team of experts have been recording 27 bore-holes and three trenches around the moat to inform a major public consultation on the council's proposed restoration of Bishops Park and the grounds of Fulham Palace.
The Tudor gateway and entrance wall that leads from the herb garden to the Palace. There is a stone inscription above the gate detailing the bishop at the time. If funding is successful this will be restored.
Rooms inside the Palace are also open to the public including the Great Hall. This is the oldest room in the Palace and dates back to 1495. Bishop Bonner supposedly tortured prisoners here between 1555 and 1558.
Admission to the Palace and grounds is free of charge. There is a small museum, cafe and gallery with exhibitions and events held throughout the year.
